Research at the Students' Union

Sheffield Hallam Students' Union undertakes research to better understand your experience as a student. We also work with Officers, Part-Time Reps, and Student Reps to develop their research ideas. By collecting feedback from you, we create a clearer representation of the SHU experience and present these findings in the annual Student Voice Report; see the Student Voice Report 2020/21 for the latest version.

Each year, the Students' Union conducts research into the student experience. Most of this research is included in the Student Voice Report. To read the current or previous versions of the Student Voice Report, please see here.

Some of the research conducted by the Students' Union is also written into bespoke reports with the aim of making more immediate progress. Previous research publications are listed below, by academic year.
