City Profile

Before we get into the City’s profile, let me assure you that this city will stay connected with you for the rest of your UK journey. You might be wondering WHY?

UKVI Sheffield office is the one where most of your visa applications will land during your extensions! Some of you who may be in a rush could also end up at the famous Vulcan House for your premium services appointments. I’ve been there myself a few times in the past and trust me it was always scary stepping in there – despite having a top-notch file! Though, the process was always smooth there. They’re very helpful and quick!

Moving on…

Let’s talk about Steel city! Yes, ‘Steel City.
Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production in the 19th century, and its population boomed during the Industrial Revolution. Hence the name “Steel City”.

The city of Sheffield is at the heart of the U.K. Located north of England, it is known for its vibrant city life, green space, amazing local scenery, and multicultural diversity. Around 5,000 international students from over 125 countries in Sheffield city alone! 

Known as the ‘Green City,’ Sheffield boasts of two million trees(Million tree Tsunami) and 250 parks and green spaces. The city is located near the edge of the Peak District National Park – a MUST GO park no matter what part of the country you live in. Google Peak District National park to get an idea. Sheffield showcases plenty of space to stroll, cycle, run or just relax. 

For those concerned about safety, Sheffield is considered the safest large city in the UK which leaves you no reason to be worried about your stay in the university. 

Universities

There are two Universities in Sheffield

The University of Sheffield – ranked as one of the best universities in the world, currently 78th in the QS World University Rankings 2020

Sheffield Hallam University – current Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year for Teaching Quality 2020. 

Transport and Traveling

Sheffield has a range of easily accessible and affordable transport links. So whether you want to find yourself in the Scottish Highlands or get lost down London’s backstreets, you are never more than a short ride from home.

Tram

The nearest tram stop is located at the University of Sheffield which will take you around.

Air

The nearest large airport to Sheffield is Manchester airport, just 33 miles away. There are good train links from Sheffield to other cities, so you guys can get to see other parts of the UK.

Bus

This mode of transport is the cheapest and most convenient way to get around the city.  High-frequency bus services can take you to all parts of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, and the Peak District. The city campus is also just a short walk from stops in the city centre on High Street, Church Street, and Leopold Street. 

Trains

There are trains to and from local stations in South and West Yorkshire and direct trains to many towns and cities across the UK.

If you are going to be traveling by bus or tram on a regular basis, please consider investing in a discounted pass to save yourself time and money. Google is your best friend! 🙂 

Employment Opportunities

Because the universities in Sheffield bear a strong academic reputation, earning your degree here means strengthening your career prospects. As a recognised original redbrick university, and now Russell Group member, its teaching standards and qualifications are highly regarded by employers and other learning institutions around the world.

A lot of the courses offered by the two universities include placement years as well. This is a fantastic opportunity to get significant experience within an industry related to your course. The universities also give you the opportunity to work with their respective Student Unions and to teach younger students! 

Accommodation

The cost of living in Sheffield is low compared to many other cities and is ranked amongst the top 10 most affordable UK university cities. Sheffield has a good range of affordable student accommodation but there are some pros and cons to remember before you sign up for that lease agreement. The best areas for students to live in Sheffield are either the city centre or the mighty Ecclesall area. This is because the city center gives you close proximity to the city campuses and is just a bus ride or short walk to the universities, but with the downside of living in a polluted environment that many would say is a less pleasant place to live than the Ecclesall area of Sheffield.

Housing will probably be your biggest expense at between £400 and £700 per month. Other living costs like groceries and transport are around 10% cheaper than the national average so that’s good!

Hope this helps! Please share any questions related to the city below.

    Continue Reading says:

    Why Keep Left? It lets traffic pass you more easily and you’re less likely to pick up oil and coolant that leaks from cars. The exception: Don’t drive close to parked cars, these doors can open unexpectedly and take you out. Avoid riding during rush hour (7-9am & 4-8pm), unless you are travelling on small roads. Travelling around the moat road is a scary experience for noob riders. You’ll often have to navigate across multiple lanes due to the one-way structure. During rush hour, both Nimman & Huay Kaew road are usually backed up by at least 100 metres. So unless you have to skills to weave in & out of the traffic while avoiding both the oblivious tourists and car mirrors, then save this daunting task for weeks 2 or 3 of your riding career. So where is good for beginners to practise? If you’re in the old town, just drive around for a few hours in the daytime or after 9. It’s quiet, the roads are wide and the pace is slow. Comment below with your first scooter experience in Chiang Mai & where you learnt.
