'When I began the course, I wasn't good at writing essays. My tutor gave me the support I needed to write well academically, and I made considerable progress. I am now working in international sales for SUPCON, a leading automatic solution supplier in China.'

Entry requirements

All students

Normally one of the following

• a good degree (2.2) or equivalent

• professional equivalent

We may consider you without a first degree if you have the necessary experience and can demonstrate an ability to complete the course. 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

Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. 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 level.
