We aim to raise the awareness of the opportunities available in Higher Education for students within schools and colleges.


We work closely with academic departments across the university to offer a range of subject-specific talks, workshops and experiences. 

This activity is often delivered at the university, giving students the opportunity to experience life as a Sheffield Hallam student. However, some activity can be delivered in schools and colleges.
