Entry requirements

UK students

You typically need one of the following

• 2.2 honours degree or above in a relevant subject

• recognised professional qualification or equivalent in a relevant subject

Relevant subjects include • business management • finance • accounting • economics • banking • law • the natural sciences • IT and computing.

We will consider applicants without these academic qualifications dependant on personal, professional and work experience and other formal qualifications.

Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English, such as an IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English standard.

If you do not meet the above criteria you can apply for the Graduate Certificate International Pre-Masters in Business and English.

You may also be able to claim credit points which can reduce the amount of time it takes to complete your qualification at Sheffield Hallam. Find out more
