According to Sudha Mary Toppo, Regional Coordinator, Sheffield Hallam University, “SHU is one among very few UK universities which offers this intake in January considering the fact that most universities in India declare their results late which deprive Indian students to pursue higher studies abroad. We are hopeful that our newly introduced courses and the scholarships will immensely benefit the students.”
