University tops student satisfaction survey

A UK student survey has seen Sheffield Hallam University secure top spot for employability.

Sheffield Hallam came first out of 28 UK Universities in the Student Barometer survey, for students satisfied that the learning they undertake during their studies will help them to get a good job when they graduate.

It also came first for students satisfied with the opportunities to earn money while studying, and for the availability of financial support.

Sheffield Hallam was second in the student survey for the quality of its career advice services and in its opportunities for work experience during study.

Paul Helm, assistant director of student and learning services at Sheffield Hallam, said: “We’re delighted with the results of this year’s Student Barometer survey and that our students rate us so highly for employability.

“Employability is a crucial component of our courses and as an institution we place a huge emphasis on preparing our students for the world of work. That’s why Sheffield Hallam offers more courses that contain a year on an industry work placement than any other institution in the country.

“We will continue to work hard to ensure our students consistently receive high quality support throughout their studies.”
