We are delighted to have Sheffield Hallam University joining London Higher as a part of our Centres Network, as it develops its new campus site in Northwest London.
The campus will provide students with teaching in key subjects and skills that are in high demand in the area, as well as opportunities for work-based learning and work experience placements in and around London.
Dr Diana Beech, CEO of London Higher said:
“Sheffield Hallam is a major civic university in its region and we are excited to welcome its new London campus to our Centres Network as the university prepares to bring its civic mission to Northwest London.
As the second Yorkshire university to join our Centres Network, Sheffield Hallam will further strengthen the capital’s connectivity to the Yorkshire region, as well as provide fresh opportunities to the people of Brent Cross Town.
With the London campuses of universities from Scotland, the Midlands, East Anglia and the North East, the London Higher Centres Network is testimony to the importance of the capital to the UK regions, and we are sure that Sheffield Hallam will benefit from the experiences and insights of our existing Centres members.”
Linda Mason, Programme Director for Sheffield Hallam in London said:
“Sheffield Hallam is and always will be proudly rooted in South Yorkshire. We contribute significantly to the region’s economy, workforce, infrastructure, health, culture and environment. But we are also committed to being a genuinely world-leading applied university. Establishing a vibrant and attractive campus in Northwest London, focused on improving the aspirations and work outcomes of students will allow us to leverage the unique opportunity offered by a Hallam experience, in our global capital city, and in a significant new town development at Brent Cross.
We are excited to be working with London Higher and to be part of the centre’s network – helping to bring even greater diversity and opportunity to students wanting to study in London.”
