Hallam Award – Final Deadline

The Hallam Award is the Students’ Union skills award that recognises and rewards students who have developed their skills through extra-curricular activities within the Students’ Union, university and in the community.

The Hallam Award is designed to help you reflect on the transferable skills you have developed that will help you in your future career aspirations and beyond.

If you’ve been a part of SHU Fest, Culture Connect, ICE Club, Global Friends or any other SHU GoGlobal scheme, then you can apply! Even if you’re studying abroad at one of our partner institutions, you can also apply!

The deadline is next week though, 10 June, so click here to get your application in! More about the scheme can be found in the video below:

Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa – summer deadline

Are you an international student and interested in being self-employed in the UK after you graduate?

If you are interested in setting up your own business, you can apply to be considered for endorsement by Sheffield Hallam University. This endorsement is necessary in order to apply for a Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa.

Our application process begins on 15 June. You must first attend an information session at 3.30pm in the Careers and Employability Centre during which we will explain all about the application process and the support we provide. We will have a graduate who is self-employed under Tier 1 GE who will be there to speak about her experiences and answer any questions that you may have.

Sheffield Hallam University has limited places, and the process is competitive. We will select only the strongest business applications.

Please visit Career Hub to find out more about the session.

Social Cycling Sessions

This summer, the Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union are helping to put on taster sports sessions, designed to get you active and experience Sheffield in new ways.

The first of these sessions is a social cycling event, giving you the opportunity to spend some time seeing the sights in the Peak District National Park – some of the most beautiful scenery you can find in the UK.

Collection of your bike and helmet is from the HUBS at 9.45am or 10am at Collegiate Campus and a coach will then take you to explore the Peaks. The sessions run on the following dates:

12 June, 19 June, 25 June, 10 July, 16 July and 24 July

Book your place in advance at the Hallam Active reception.
