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!

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 ❣

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!

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.

In my opinion the University of Sheffield is good organized, the buildings are very clean and warm and the lecture theaters are very comfortable.

Sheffield Uni student union was ranked as the top best student union for the past 10 years. The University of Sheffield is a public research university in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. It received its royal charter in 1905 as successor to the University College of Sheffield, which was established in 1897 by the merger of Sheffield Medical School, Firth College and Sheffield Technical School

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.

Very good students union (won best in the country for 10 years running). Very good jobs available in a range of different roles. Pays above minimum wage and pays for training and DBS is required.

The facility are good and I do enjoy how there are various buildings for lectures. I enjoy how the university is in the Heart of the City Centre. It's not far from many good places to eat like London Road or west street. The staff are present and if anything came up, we'd know through black board

I am in my third year now and have had an absolutely amazing time at the University of Sheffield. There is so much to take part in and join, like sports clubs and other societies. I was welcomed onto my course from day 1, and the lecturers really do care about you and want you to do well. What is lovely about this university is that although it is a city-based university, all the buildings are really close together and do have a feel of a campus as the university is not spread around the whole city.

Large and open campus that's very modern and well-equipped. Excellent student's Union with everything you could possibly want and need, both societies and nightlife. My course is very broad and covers many topics, with very supportive staff to lend a hand whenever they can. Careers service always happy to help and gives plenty of advice.

A university with great facilities. Several libraries with different styles and sizes to meet different students needs. An award winning student union which helps integrate the social aspects of the University.

The campus, while not the traditional red-brick isolated campus, is one of the best things about the uni. It's spread all across the city, which means that you get to learn the ins and outs of Sheffield just by going to class. The city of Sheffield is great too, being an amazing student city if you like nightlife and sports and a green city as well if you like environmentally-friendly eateries and nature. The SU is the best thing about Sheffield as it's the central hub for all social activities while also being where most student living support (e.g. jobshop, grocery shop) is located. I've had few complaints about Sheffield since I started here...only shame is that the Languages and Arts departments aren't as supported as the technical and science departments such as engineering and business. Nevertheless I cannot recommend this University enough!

The University has been amazing soo far. I really love the students Union and the closeness of the buildings to each other so it's easier to get to class in the morning for those dreadful 9ams. Also love the social aspect as it makes alot of work bearable and the university always has you at mind.

The University of Sheffield is an excellent choice for anyone. I can't speak personally about all the courses as I've only done Business Management, but the facilities and overall impression is great.
