Dr Rob Hunt BA, PG Dip., MA, PG Cert., PhD

Senior Lecturer in Social Policy


I started work in the early 1980s as a commercial valuation and development surveyor. A change of path led to a return to university and the completion of an Urban Studies degree at Sheffield Hallam University in 1988. Between then and starting at Hallam (2005), I worked in local authority and RSL housing management, and I've taught professional and academic housing courses at a variety of organisations in London.

  • About

    I teach on a number of programmes within the College of Social Sciences and Arts including economics, politics, urban regeneration and research skills. I have a general interest in social policy implementation and development, and specialist knowledge of state and market housing. I also supervise a range of housing related dissertations, and recently supervised a PhD examining Nigerian housing finance to completion.

    Qualifications include HND Estate Management, BA (Hons) Urban Studies, Diploma and MA Housing Studies, and PhD in Policy Studies/Political Science. I've also completed a number of other courses as part of staff development, including psychology and distance learning.

    My research interests centre on the implementation of public policy in general, and social housing, marketisation and the experiences surrounding economic regeneration in particular. I am always happy to discuss – informally and formally - ideas around these themes.
