About Sheffield

Sheffield - and why you'll love living here!

Sheffield is one of the most popular destinations for students in the UK, with two renowned institutions: The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.

As England's third largest city, Sheffield is BIG - but you'd never know it. That's because it's really a collection of urban and semi-rural villages, interspersed by more trees and greenery that any other city in Europe. Locals often refer to Sheffield as the biggest village in England.

From it's industrial revolution heritage of iron, steel and manufacturing, still an important part in the local economy today, Sheffield has evolved into a national hub for creative and digital industries, employing an estimated 25,000. This accounts for Sheffield's unique character as a city: vintage industrial & Victorian heritage gets mixed up in happy harmony with the thoroughly modern. It's a place like no other!

The number of students studying in Sheffield is around 60,000, which is, astonishingly, around 10% of the entire population! This means that, as a student in Sheffield, you're in the right place for vibrant social life, jam-packed with student-friendly bars, clubs, shops and affordable eateries. And when you just can't take any more nightlife, you'll be delighted to discover that Sheffield is right on the doorstep of the Peak District National Park - just a short bus ride into some of the best wild countryside in Britain.

But be warned… if you come to study in Sheffield, you may never leave! Sheffield has an exceptionally high rate of students choosing to stay and live after completing their studies. If you come here, you'll understand why.
