Are you thinking of applying to university this year? Whether you're deciding between universities or writing your personal statement, you might have lots of questions about the process.

We are the official Sheffield Hallam student ambassadors that manage this account, find out more about us below and feel free to ask us anything!

Hey guys, I’m Harry! I studied Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at A-level and I applied to Sheffield Hallam through clearing to study Biology. After a year and a half of the course, I decided it really wasn’t for me and that I couldn’t see myself utilising the degree. After a meeting with the course leader to show my interest, I then switched courses to Business and Financial Management. This was the best decision I ever made - I’m now in my final year of the course and enjoy the variety of assessments and modules, my favourite being business operations and a consultancy project in final year. To inform my original decision, I visited an open day and fell in love with the city and the fact it wasn’t too far from home in Manchester. I will happily answer any questions you have about my course, changing courses, disability support services or student life in Sheffield!

Hi everyone, I'm Lucy! Alongside being a student ambassador, I'm in my final year studying Marketing Communications and Advertising. At A-Level I studied History, Classics and Politics. I chose my course because I liked the idea of doing something creative and practical at the same time, and was really keen on doing a year in industry which my course offers. I also really liked Sheffield as a city, the vibrant student life and opportunity to escape to the Peaks was definitely a pull factor for me. Last year I did a year in industry at NBCUniversal working under Universal Pictures, so if you have any questions about applying for placements or doing a virtual internship I'd be happy to help!

Hey, I’m Zaira! For my A-levels, I chose to study English language and literature, History and Religious Studies. I chose to study Law as I enjoyed debating and analysing issues and I have just graduated from the course. I chose Sheffield Hallam because I really liked the practical element of the course. For example in my third year I was able to attend placement at a law firm. I also liked the fact I could choose different modules to study. Before making my decision, I checked the university website to help me learn more about the university and course. I am originally from Sheffield and chose to stay in the city for a number of reasons, one being to save money. I also loved the layout of the uni and how it was in the city centre and close to lots of shops.

Hi, I’m Safaa! I'm from Leeds and I studied Biology and Chemistry at A-level as well as a double applied science Btec course. I currently study Radiotherapy & Oncology at Sheffield Hallam. I didn’t know this course existed until I went to a Radiotherapy open day in the department in my local hospital where I was intrigued by the course. Having not decided on what I was going to do after my A-levels, I knew I really wanted to go to uni and on clearing I received a call from Sheffield Hallam University where I enquired about the course. Due to my course being mostly on clinical placement, I decided to commute to uni. However, I also experienced living out for a few weeks in Sheffield which I’m so glad I did.

Normally the Sheffield Hallam student reps do a good job and represent the uni well. Hope you continue the tradition. Good for Hallam in taking these forums seriously, am sure it more than pays for itself.
