How does Sheffield Hallam score in the Stonewall 'Gay by Degree' Guide?
Gay by Degree is a guide for prospective students considering university study, to check out how 'LGBT friendly' their university is likely to be. There are 10 categories, and you can check out the latest rating on the Gay by Degree website (due to be relaunched in 2016). We are very proud that in the 2015 guide, we have scored 10 out of 10!
Are there any career development related opportunities specifically for LGBT students?
Find your place in the city
AuthentiCity is an event, supported by Stonewall, created exclusively for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT) undergraduates looking to explore career opportunities in the City. You’ll get to speak to representatives from six worldwide firms, who’ll be providing a valuable insight into their work and sharing their experiences of being LGBT in the workplace. Get involved and we could show you just how much you can accomplish while still remaining true to who you are.
