A message to our alumni community regarding Sheffield Hallam’s A-Level results position
Monday 24 August 2020
You may be directly affected by this, either through children, friends or loved ones, or as a potential employer, looking on as the situation unfolds.
Our alumni are valued members of our university community and we wanted to update you on Sheffield Hallam University’s position following this announcement.
We know that 2020 has been an extremely challenging year for students looking forward to starting their studies this September. Therefore, over the Clearing and Confirmation period, we have tried to be as flexible, fair and understanding as possible, by confirming places for a large number of students at slightly below the offers we made to them earlier in the year.
We now want to reassure prospective students as much as possible as to what will happen now.
We are reviewing decisions on an individual basis for those applicants that were unsuccessful but have now had now received higher grades. We can confirm that we intend to honour original offers as far as possible so that students can start with us in September.
There may be a very small number of cases where we cannot do so due to constraints, such as available work placements for certain health or teaching courses. In this case we will offer a place at the next available intake.
Any applicant with queries about being awarded new grades should contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Confirmation and Clearing lines are open and we encourage applicants to call us on 0330 024 6390 to discuss their options.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our alumni community for their continued support.
