The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University proved popular choices for students collecting their A-level results earlier this month with students eager to head to the steel city.

Many of these new students will be moving away from home for the first time and potentially travelling across the country to spend the next few years in Sheffield.

To help new students settle in to life in the new city, the University of Sheffield has helpfully produced a video outlining the best 30 things for students to do.

Seeing a play at the Crucible and going to a gig at the Leadmill all feature in the list as well as some activities specifically designed for new students.

Here are the University's top 30 things for students to do in the city and find out more on the University of Sheffield's website.
