No. Two completely different universities.

The University of Sheffield is in the Russell Group.

Sheffield Hallam is a former poly.

There's nothing wrong with either, but, on the whole, they cater to different sets of students.

It’s like Cambridge/anglia ruskin, Newcastle/Northumbria, oxford/oxford Brooke’s, Manchester/Manc metropolitan.

Loads of examples

The University Of Sheffield is more academic, it's in the Russell Group, meaning it does good research, and you will need higher grades to get in than for Sheffield Hallam.

I'm looking at Sheffield since you don't need physics for engineering

For example, to do history at Sheffield, you need AAB in your A levels.

To do history at sheffield Hallam, you need 112 UCAS Points, which equates to BBC.

University of Sheffield is much more academic it is considered as a good university.
If you said I went to Sheffield people would presume "University of Sheffield"
Sheffield Hallam is not as good of a uni and is often viewed as "those who didn't get into the University of Sheffield"

Jokes man loads of my mates are at Hallam including two of my housemates. Baffled me how OP didn't know the difference between unis yet is considering applying to a RG uni. Simple google wouldn't have gone amiss either.
To OP: for sure come to Uni of Sheffield, our engineering department is top notch. May I ask why you're not doing physics though? Most universities require it for a reason. You should be fine if you've done the mechanics modules in A level maths, but if it's not too late then definitely consider physics. However, they pretty much go over the stuff required from A level maths and physics in first year (but at a higher speed).

I’ve been given a place at university of sheffield but Sheffield Hallam is my first choice. Just because you choose Hallam doesn’t mean your not “academic” enough for the university of sheffield. You choose the university which you feel fits you better. I’m academic but Hallam feels more of a family and welcoming, in my opinion.

As a Uni of Sheffield Student I feel a little insulted 😅 not going to lie.

The University of Sheffield is a Russell group uni where as Hallam is not.

As a university of Sheffield Student, you've just bumped a 2 year old thread. Turns out university prestige doesn't make people a genius.
Sorry. I didn't intend to offend anyone. Just proud of my uni and used to the banter between Hallam and Sheffield.

..and yes I am a complete noob when it comes to using the student room. Downloaded the app earlier today, but I will get better 😁.

Again I apologise for any hurt feelings.
