    Hello,
    I've applied for Education studies and have received an unconditional offer.
    Due to me living in Staffordshire I'd want to live in student accommodation. I was wondering when you would start moving into your halls in September - I'm on holiday and I won't be back home until the 8th of September!? x

    Hi Kirsty,

    Usually people move into student accommodation in the week/weekend before Freshers Week (19th September this year), so you will still have time to move once you're back from your holidays. Are you off somewhere sunny?

    It might be worth giving the friendly guys in Accommodation services a call and they should be able to provide further details. You can call them on 0114 225 5555.

    Thanks,

    Hey,

    I've applied to do OT at Sheffield Hallam, Teeside, Derby, Cumbria and Newcastle. I am hoping I get an interview for Sheffield Hallam as it would be my first choice. Unfortunately Teeside rejected me and gave me an offer for 'Early Childhood studies' instead. I have an interview for Derby on the 23rd of March next month and an interview for Cumrbia on the 2nd of March. What sort of experiences do you have? I've been finding it so hard to find people who are applying for the same course at the same places!

    Good Morning,

    I was just wondering when the latest date for hearing back from admissions for Physiotherapy?
    I have had my replies from all other Uni's but just not Hallam, and I was wondering if it is just a slip up or whether the process is that long that I won't hear back until May time for example?

    Cheers,
    Doug

    Hi Doug,

    It can take varied amounts of time to hear back from us depending on the academic department and number of applicants. Physiotherapy is a very popular course, so it's likely we've simply not reached your application yet. If you're really concerned about your application, you can give our admissions team a call on 0114 225 5555.

    Thanks

    Hello!
    I've been offered a few conditional offers for Diagnostic Radiography but I've decided on Sheffield Hallam .
    I'm about to hit 30 this year (slightly depressing...)

    I'm looking at moving into halls for the first year, I've been advised to put on my application to be grouped up with other mature students so I believe I might end up in a random accommodation but with mature students. I'm not bothered about the distance to the campus as most accommodation is within 30mins.

    Few questions
    Any ideas which are the quieter Halls? As I can't handle drinking and partying any more...
    Is there a mature student groups/society?
    Do you see many older students in halls?

    Got a student tour booked in a couple of weeks to have a better look around can't wait!

    Thanks

    Hi, I've got a conditional offer for Game Design and am waiting for some other offers but really want to go to Sheffield Hallam. Super excited because it looks really good.

    My only concern is that I've heard the SU isn't great and was wondering if there are any changes being made to try and improve it for September 2016?

    Hello,

    There have been massive changes happening to the SU over the last few months.

    Our café (formerly known as POD4) is now a cool new coffee shop called Coffee Union, serving Starbucks coffee cheaper than a high street alongside a great range of delicious cakes and pastries.

    There's also a pop up shop in the entrance selling Hallam hoodies, goodies and event tickets. You won't recognise the place!

    Thanks,

    Hi Elenrockx44,

    Congratulations on your offer

    Have you made your firm and insurance choices yet? You'll need to make sure you've done this before you are able to apply for our accommodation.

    You'll be studying at Collegiate Campus, so there are some great accommodation choices for you within a short walk. The Forge and Charlotte Court are both about a 15-20 minute walk away. They're great for meeting new people, are really good quality and as well as being close to Collegiate, it's still really easy to get into the city centre. Here's our accommodation map so you can see for yourself.

    Hope that's helpful
