About Sheffield

Find out all about Sheffield

.
  • Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough in South Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city.
  • With some of its southern suburbs annexed from Derbyshire, the city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base.
  • In the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Known as the Steel City, many innovations were developed locally, including crucible and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population in the Industrial Revolution.
  • The city is in the eastern foothills of the Pennines, and the valleys of the River Don and its four tributaries, the Loxley, the Porter Brook, the Rivelin and the Sheaf. 61% of Sheffield’s entire area is green space, and a third of the city lies within the Peak District national park.

Sheffield Hallam University Facts

  • Sheffield Hallam University was founded in 1843, originally as the Sheffield School of Design and in response to the industrial revolution, in which Sheffield established itself as a leading centre for steel production.
  • Granted university status in 1992
  • The university has two campuses: City Campus is at the heart of the city and located near to Sheffield railway station; and Collegiate Campus, which is a couple of miles further out and surrounded by green space. Both comprise Grade-II listed buildings alongside more modern facilities.
  • It offers over 700 courses for students to choose from, with more than half its courses including an integrated work placement or similar.
  • The university prides itself on its health and social care courses, teacher training, and sport and physical activity. Its most popular courses by enrolment numbers are in business and administrative studies, medicine, and biology.
  • It’s also safer than other big cities, according to the 2013 UK Peace Index, which judged it to be an easy-going and tolerant place to live.
