Students who want to get help with their English can take advantage of the following services:


University English Scheme


Sheffield Hallam Erasmus/Exchange students who are non-native English speakers can take advantage of the University English Scheme. Students can choose from a range of free modules, workshops and classes to help develop their academic English for undergraduate and postgraduate study.  Classes and workshops run over the course of the semester and attendance at weekly sessions is advised, but not a requirement. You can view a full list of available workshops and start to register for these via UniHub when you have enrolled on your course.

Conversation Club


Conversation Club is one of the best ways to meet friends from around the world. It gives you the chance to practise your English though participating in informal conversations, enhanced by music, videos and interactive games to help you start talking. Conversation Club runs every two weeks throughout term time.
