It’s a friendly, safe, multicultural city in the north of England offering plenty to see and do. Sheffield is one of the UK’s most popular places for students to go to university. The city is large enough to offer a great range of restaurants, shopping, theatre, cinemas, bars and culture; yet small enough for students to find their way around quickly and feel part of the community. Located in the county of South Yorkshire, in the north of England, Sheffield offers plenty to do both in the city and surrounding area. Students can easily travel around the UK from here too.
