How to apply to Sheffield Hallam if you are from outside the UK

The application process varies depending on your study level and whether you are an EU or international-fee paying student.

  • International Foundation Programme

    To apply for our International Foundation Programme in Art, Design and MediaBusiness, Law and Social Sciences or Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), please complete the application form and submit to ifp@shu.ac.uk.

    The application form includes a checklist of the information and supporting documents that you need to provide.

    On the application form, please specify which undergraduate degree you would like to progress to from the International Foundation Programme. You do not need to complete a separate application form for your chosen undergraduate degree.

  • Undergraduate courses

    International (non-EU) students

    To apply for an undergraduate course, we recommend that you apply directly to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

    If you would prefer to apply to us direct, then you can contact internationaladmissions@shu.ac.uk for an application form.

    EU students

    To apply for a postgraduate course, you should complete our online application form which can be found on the individual page of the course you want to apply for - search our online prospectus for detailed information about all of our courses.

    If you are applying through one of our registered recruitment agents, they might be able to complete the application form on your behalf.

    Application deadlines

    There is no fixed application deadline for most postgraduate courses, but you should submit your application form to us as soon as possible as courses do fill up. International (non-EU) students also need to allow for time to apply for a visa.

  • Research degrees

    Once you have decided in which area you would like to perform research, we encourage you to have an informal discussion with staff in the relevant research centre. We recommend that you have a clear, detailed research proposal ready beforehand.

    You should then apply using our postgraduate application form and send this to the faculty office for the research theme that you are applying for.

    You are asked to provide full details of your academic and work background and most applications require the names of two academic referees.

    When considering an application the University must ensure the research proposal is appropriate, the applicant is suitably qualified and adequate supervision and facilities are available.

    After enrolling, you must submit a formal research proposal within three months to the University's Research Degrees Sub-Committee for approval.

    Application deadlines

    There is no formal deadline – we consider applications throughout the year.

  • Help and guidance with your application

    If you need help with your application or would like some advice on study options, you can contact one of our offices in Sheffield, China, Pakistan, Nigeria, South Asia and South East Asia, recruitment agents in your country or a British Council office in your area.

    You can also meet one of our representatives at the events and fairs we attend in your country. You can find more information about our courses, discuss your qualifications and find out about student life at the University.
