Coming to Sheffield Hallam on an exchange

Erasmus logo

Sheffield Hallam is a great place to come if you want to do an exchange. We have been supporting students wanting to study with us through an exchange for many years and are able to offer exchanges on a variety of courses.

As a university we are home to more than 34,000 students from over 120 countries meaning our students benefit from learning new cultures and being able to improve their language skills.

Sheffield is one of the most popular student cities in the UK, offering our students a great experience. The city has a low cost of living compared with other UK cities meaning your money goes further.

It is centrally located in the UK and is well connected to numerous cities and heritage sites. Being just over two hours from London and one hour from Manchester by train, we are in a great location for travel across the UK.

The city is also surrounded by beautiful countryside - a third of the city lies within the Peak District National Park and it boasts more than 200 parks, woodlands and gardens.

If you are interested in studying with us on an exchange programme you will need to check that we have an exchange agreement with your university in the subject area you are studying and whether there are places available.

You will need to discuss any possible exchange with your exchange co-ordinator and/or staff in your international office before you complete an application.

Jonathan Bryan Lee Yi-Zhong, from Taylors University, Malaysia studied BSc Food Science and Nutrition on an exchange

'I got to know and socialise with people from different backgrounds and that exposed me to new experiences. I also enjoyed visiting British towns and villages like Matlock and Oxford because the scenery of Britain is absolutely gorgeous, from the sweeping evergreen countryside to classical architecture from times gone by.'
