    Hey

    Have you had a look at our accommodation web pages? There's a map showing the distance of all our halls from both campuses. To give you a bit of a guide, the Forge is about a 15 minute walk, and Bramall Court and Charlotte Court are about a 20 minute walk from Collegiate campus and are also slightly cheaper. There are quite a few to choose from in this area!

    Thanks

    Hi I was looking at the length of the tenancies available at Sheffield Hallam I wanted a 51 week tenancy I have been offered a conditional place to study Diagnostic Radiography this September. Do healthcare students have to have longer tenancies for placement?

    I emailed Sheffield about this last week and their contracts that are 51 weeks aren't released until April 😊.
    You can still apply as normal and change your application at a later date if the accommodation you've picked doesn't do 51 week contracts.
    This is what accommodation services told me

    They said it's possible at the selection day but I'm not 100% sure how you go about claiming these expenses I'm sure they will explain in August at the pre course day hopefully I see you there we are doing the same course

    Hi both,

    Some students can claim expenses depending on how far away their placement is and how they travel there. It's worth speaking to the course leaders when you arrive in September, but if you are concerned at this stage you can speak to the health and social care admissions team who should be able to advise you. Ask for them on 0114 225 5555.

    I hope that helps. If you've got any further questions around placement or accommodation, give me a shout

    Laura
