Student support

Like with any new experience, it’s normal to feel anxious about going to university. So it’s good to know you’ll be fully supported throughout your time here. We are committed to helping you study, achieve your potential and enjoy your time at Sheffield Hallam.

Three dedicated advisers looking out for you

In your first few weeks you’ll meet advisers who'll get to know your needs and interests – giving you a personal support service right through to graduation and beyond.

  1. Your student support adviser gives you help and advice when difficulties arise that affect your ability to study. They can help you access specialist services when you need them.

  2. Your academic adviser supports your academic journey and performance, helping you achieve your goals and guiding you through options for further study and development.

  3. Your employability adviser helps you develop your career during and beyond your studies, from job searches and finding relevant placements to CV writing and interview preparation.

Instant answers on the go

Wherever you are on campus, you’ll always be near a Hallam Help point – there are 11 in total. Find answers to your questions, get directions, or be guided towards further support. Not on campus? You can also access all our services online, by email and by phone.

Safe spaces

Need to talk about something sensitive? Our support services are fully confidential, and have private rooms for one-on-one consultations.
