Sheffield Hallam University
Research that transforms lives
At Sheffield Hallam, our approach to research emerges from our values as an institution. We believe in applied learning and multi-disciplinary collaboration. We believe universities should make material contributions to the cultural, economic, social and health challenges facing society today. Most importantly, we believe that the pursuit of knowledge has the power to transform lives.
Our ambition is to magnify that spirit of discovery and collaboration, and embed it in the world’s leading applied university – ensuring that through our teaching, every new contribution to knowledge is passed down to the next generation.
We are recognised nationally and internationally for the quality of our research - 65% of our research submitted in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 was rated world-leading or internationally excellent.
