    Hi James-93

    Congratulations on your offers! We thought we'd just chip in and share our thoughts on Sheffield as a student city - Laura and I both studied at Hallam and continued to live here after graduating because we think Sheffield is so great

    Depending on what you're after, Sheffield has something for everyone. With two universities in the city, we're a great student city with many high street and independent shops, a vast variety of eateries, fantastic night life and great transport links to the rest of the country. Sheffield is one of the biggest cities in the UK, but everything you need is within walking distance - so very few transport costs! If you're a bit of an outdoors type, the Peak District is only 20 minutes away, so you can experience the best of the city and the country.

    One of our favourite things about Sheffield is that there are so many festivals to get involved in all year round, which gives the city a unique buzz. From Tramlines, our inner city music festival, to Doc/Fest, one of the top 3 documentary festivals in the world, there's so much to shout about! Our Sheffield web pages can tell you all the reasons students think we're a great student city.

    Hope that's helpful

    Hannah and Laura

    Few people will have been at more than one university so you might struggle to get much info. Have you got more specific questions? It might be worth trying to visit the universities for open days before you decide as you can then see the city, location of the uni etc for yourself.

    also worth bearing in mind that university is mostly what you make it, and you won't see more than one city so you're not going to be sat there thinking 'oh I wish I went to Manchester instead of Sheffield'

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
