Sheffield is a fantastic destination for students and is world famous for its manufacturing of steel products. There is still a steel industry in the city and it is home to two popular universities: the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. The universities provide a wide range of educational opportunities and the city welcomes 50,000 new students from the UK and around the world every year.
This means that the student population in Sheffield is very large and there's a lot for students to do in the 'Steel City'. Along with a thriving student scene featuring music as well as bars and restaurants, there are also lots of cultural activities including excellent theatres such as the Crucible. Sheffield also has a wide range of sporting facilities and is home to two popular football teams, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.
Along with thriving student areas with shops and bars aimed at the local population, Sheffield also offers lots of parks (featuring two millions trees - the highest tree-to-people ratio in Europe!) and is one of Europe's greenest cities. The city's transport infrastructure, which includes trams, means it's easy to get around Sheffield and to other towns and cities, including the Peak District and Pennines.
