The institution

Sheffield Hallam is one of the UK's largest and most progressive universities with more than 34,718 students and 4,400 staff. Based in Yorkshire's second largest city, we operate from two campuses – our City Campus, and our Collegiate Campus which is around 15 minutes walk from the city centre. We have strong international links, particularly in Malaysia, India and China.

Thousands of graduates still live in Sheffield, and around half of our graduates each year enter employment or further study in Yorkshire and the Humber.

Postgraduate study

Whether you want to develop your career, change direction or become an expert in an academic field, our full-time and part-time postgraduate courses can help you achieve your goals. They include MBAs, MAs MScs and doctorates as well as professional development degrees, diplomas and certificates.

Our courses are designed in partnership with employers, professional associations and practice specialists to reflect the latest thinking in industry. This ensures you graduate with the skills employers are looking for.

Our conversion courses are specifically designed to help you enter a career which is unrelated from your undergraduate degree - so you don't have to start over again. This means changing direction is a real option.


We're one of the leading new universities in the UK for research, with an international reputation in key research areas such as materials science, art and design, sports science and engineering, biomedicine, and economic and social research.

Our research is characterised by a focus on impact – addressing the cultural, economic and social challenges facing society today. We achieve this by applying and translating our research at local, national and international levels.

Through our postgraduate research you could be investigate a specialist topic of your choice, and making new discoveries that have a real impact on the world around you.

There are also opportunities to get involved in teaching and seminars, to present papers at conferences and to publish your work, building your professional reputation. Your research is supported by expert supervision from an experienced researcher, a programme of supporting studies, and by pastoral and administrative staff.


Your study is supported by some of the most advanced learning, teaching and IT facilities in the UK following an investment of more than £100m over the last decade. We're continually updating our facilities to acquire the latest technology and equipment, to help you reinforce and apply the theory you're learning. Plus the newly acquired and refurbished Aspect Court building is specifically for postgraduate and professional teaching, enabling you to network with fellow postgraduate students.

Our learning centres are at the heart of your university life. That's why they're open 24 hours a day, all year round, with free Wi-Fi.
