Support needed for Sheffield Hallam University students this new academic year.

25th August 2021

Due to the significant impacts Covid-19 has had on organisations we are looking for help to support our students with in-curriculum projects and some short placements/work experiences.

 All of this is no financial cost to you at all, just some of your time which varies on the options.

Sheffield Hallam have some great opportunities to work with students from this October through to next Easter. They have in-curriculum opportunities to have students do projects for you or complete short placements with you as either individuals or in groups (virtually or face to face-we are flexible).

Applied Projects

Sheffield Hallam's Applied Projects scheme is a work-related learning scheme, which allows students to put their theory into practice through ‘real life’ projects, which are accredited as part of their degree.

Student groups work on projects spanning 10-12 weeks across term time: Semester 1 (late September – December) and Semester 2 (January – April).

Students work on projects independently with their tutors, therefore needing only a small amount of your time.

Please click here to see the project areas covered Project areas | Applied Projects (formerly Venture Matrix) (

Students can help add value to your organisation, supporting projects that you may have struggled to put time or resources into.   Students can offer key skills, specialist knowledge and fresh insight into your organisation.
