I have just finished my second year and the university and so far I have had an incredible experience. The students union is just fantastic, it offers such a wide range of activities and resources in comparison to the other universities I looked at. I study maths with spanish and have found it interesting though challenging st times, the only issue I have had has been communications between departments and length of Spabjsh classes (3 hours). Having suffered with mental health problems and struggling through grief I found the university services extremely helpful, allowing me to continue my studies throughout the difficulties.

The University of Sheffield has professionals who encourage students to explore, learn and become passionate about the subjects.

The facilities here are absolutely amazing, the Diamond library has everything for engineers! All the staff members I have encountered have been very supportive also! There are so many sports and societies available to join and there is a reason why Sheffield has been the number 1 students union so many years in a row! Sheffield not only has a great uni buts it’s just a great place to live too!

Sheffield is really good for students. It's incredibly cheap to live in and a lot of local venues offer student discounts. The campus is well situated in the centre of the city making it easy to get to places, and you can get about by bus or tram. The university is great and I really love my department (School of English) - I've done 3 degrees here now and I don't want to leave!

One of the best decisions of my life was to go to UOS. I've had incredible experiences from fun nights out to career opportunities like no other. The university is incredibly supportive of your personal development both in your degree and in extra curriculars. There is so much help available in all fields from mental health to careers services and industrial exposure. Couldn't have choosen a better university.

UK's best student Union for past 11 years. Amazing campus, career services and the facilities. The timetable is designed in a way to allow plenty of time for sports, lectures are followed by tutorial in the coming week and full revision in the last weeks. You can always use discussion boards, all lectures are recorded, 3d projections available, you can use iForge for making your idea a reality using 3d printing and designing, state of the art Diamond Building and the Pilot Plants. 24/7 open Information Commons, and a beautiful Western Bank Library sums up the Uni of Sheffield. Home, away from home ❣

Very good university with a lot of attention payed to the needs and wishes of students. The campus is located conveniently on the edge of the city centre but all the buildings are close enough together.

sheffield has the best student union in the country and the nights out there are amazing. Sheffield is a non campus uni however the buildings are so close together so it is ideal. Sheffield has many societies to join and there would definetly be something for you.

Library facilities are great. Course is good but could be more challenging. Feedback is not provided within 3 week limit.

The University of Sheffield is regarded one of the best in the world, let alone in the UK! That's one of the reasons I left my home country of Greece and came here to study. And oh! it has lived up to its word! Firstly, my department (the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences) is excquisite in its job. Apart from having world renowned scientists giving you lectures, it also undertakes very complicated and important research studies. And of course, the SU! Voted the best in the UK for 10(!) years in a row, it absolutley lives up to its expectations. With its dozens of activity and sport societies, a large coffee shops (serving delish coffee) two great bars, a small shop, several restaurants,an absolutely fabulous career service it provides an amazing experience to every student, home or international. Expect to have an excellent time in our beloved Sheff!

There’s always something organised by the Student Union for students to do, so no problem there. The lecture halls and most facilities look nice and modern. The course structure does need some work but they are always asking for feedback on how to do this.

Campus is always clean and well maintained, which given the size and the fact that it is a city university is hard to do. The students union is consistently ranked #1 in the UK and has lots of events going on constantly for anyone to get involved with.

Sheffield overall is a good university, I study biomedical science a course that I wouldn’t recommend as the department isn’t very helpful and lecturers don’t try to make lectures interesting. However, the university as a whole has good facilities, the student union has been voted number 1 in the country for years, it has shops, restaurants, activities halls, bars and even a cinema so there’s lots to offer. The careers service the university offers is good you can book appointments on the day to speak to an adviser if you’re early enough and you can use the service up to 3 years after graduating which is really helpful. Overall my uni experience hasn’t been the best but that’s due to my course not the university itself.

The campus itself is a very open spaced campus and can take a while to get from one side to another, however the beautiful greenery and buildings will make it a plesaple trip. The gem of Sheffield university, being the Diamond, is a very modern building that gives all the essentials an average engineering student requires (that includes comfy sofas for those engineers studying at night). Plus being open 24/7 means you wont miss deadlines if you really need to use the facilities. The Diamond is a very large building offering many computer desks an printing facilities. Another useful building is the Information Commons, or better known as IC for short. The IC is where you can not only get all the general information you need but they also have a library and study spaces, plus the building is a few minutes walk away from the student union which means no excuses for not working.

University of Sheffield is one of the top 100 universities in the world. Services on campus are so much helpful to us and the people who work there.

Overall, my experience here has been great. I study bioengineering, an interdisciplinary course, so I have classes on different venues from different departments across the University, my course is awesome, the facilities are new, clean and completely oriented to students: we have a place called iForge which is basically a fancy carpentry / workshop, everyone has access to this and you can do some pretty cool stuff (like use the 3D Printers). I'm very happy with my lecturers and the structure of the course itself. Uni of Sheffield is also great thanks to the students union, when they say that they are there to make our university life better, they mean it. There are tons of societies, and support in many areas such as immigration, housing, academic and many more. They also have a zero waste shop/

Best Uni Ever. Best student union. I did my Master’s here and I was so happy when I was accepted for a PHD program. Absolutely perfect.

The students union is fantastic, well organised, Will all the facilities you need. The club nights are excellent with them providing good nights for everyone, from cheesy pop to baseline. The departments themselves provide good teaching and I really feel as though I’ll be leaving my degree with well rounded theoretical knowledge and good grounding in the practical application. I do feel the university provide good facilities, with 24/7 libraries which provide comfortable study spaces. All in all, I feel I’ll be leaving knowing I’ve not only had a fantastic social experience with the range of clubs, societies and club nights in the foundry, but also a great academic experience in which I feel prepared for the working world.
