Sheffield Hallam University is one of the largest providers of 'sandwich' education in Europe and is very experienced at providing students with placements at degree level. Placements help students to understand the connection between their course and how it relates to their career. For employers, it can be a great way to recruit, with a chance to bring fresh ideas into an organisation and an opportunity to create links with our University.
