Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam is one of the largest universities in the UK, with a clear vision: to be the world's leading applied university, achieving outstanding outcomes for our students and our city, and showing the world what a university genuinely focused on transforming lives can achieve.

Our mission

Our mission is simple: we transform lives. We do this by shaping our students’ futures and preparing them for whatever they choose to do, and by creating knowledge that provides practical solutions to real world challenges.

Linking Sheffield to the world - and the world to Sheffield

We are a university physically and educationally at the heart of our city and region, attracting remarkable students from the locality, the nation and globally.

We recruit 67% of our home students from within the wider city region, contribute an annual £424m to the local economy and engage with over 47,000 future learners a year through our outreach and community activity. Almost 20% of our students are from neighbourhoods with traditionally low numbers going to university.

Join us

We want to develop a university that is globally outstanding at what we do. A truly great university that is:

  • innovative
  • imaginative
  • not afraid to take risks to make a difference.

To achieve all this we need exceptional people.

The world needs universities to respond quickly, applying academic excellence, innovative research and open-minded engagement in new ways to meet society’s needs.

If you're interested in joining us, and helping us provide compelling answers to the challenges of the twenty first century.
