Transform Together Scholarships

How you can apply for Transform Together Scholarships as an international student.

We value high-achieving international students at Sheffield Hallam University. Our Transform Together Scholarships are meant for you as you start your full-time taught course in 2023–24.

We award these scholarships based on a demonstration of your excellent academic achievement and your potential to represent the University as an ambassador.

What you could get

A half fee waiver (50% discount) is available for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses for the first year of study.

Transform Together scholarships

  • are applied as a tuition fee reduction in your first year of study.
  • cannot be transferred or deferred to a later start date.

Remember, you can only receive one scholarship or award for each course of study.

Who can apply

You can apply for a Transform Together Scholarship if you:

  • have been offered a place on a full-time undergraduate degree course or postgraduate taught course at Sheffield Hallam University starting in September 2023
  • are an international fee-paying student
  • are fully-self financing your studies. This means that you are not receiving any funding for your studies from an external source such as a government, a scholarship provider, a company or an employer. 
  • You are classed as self-funded if a family member or friend funds your studies.
  • are able to pay the remainder of your tuition fee and any additional fees your course may require, for example field trips.
  • must meet the English and academic requirements for your course.
  • if you are progressing from a Sheffield Hallam undergraduate degree to a masters degree, or from a Sheffield Hallam International Foundation Programme to an undergraduate programme.

If you are applying at postgraduate level, you also need to:

  • have at least a 2.1 or equivalent in your undergraduate degree
  • be entering postgraduate study for the first time, have not been awarded a postgraduate qualification either in the UK or overseas in the past. Transform Together postgraduate scholarships are strictly for students progressing from undergraduate to postgraduate study. 

You cannot apply if you:

  • are already enrolled upon the Sheffield Hallam University course for which you are applying for a scholarship
  • have previously received a Transform Together Scholarship at the same level of study
  • are applying to study a Sheffield Hallam course at a partner institution outside the UK
  • are applying for a foundation programme

If you are applying for a foundation programme, you will be able to apply for the scholarship when you progress to an undergraduate degree course.

We reserve the right to only consider applicants for a scholarship if they have accepted an offer for their course of study. We strongly advise applicants to accept their offer of a place on the course by the scholarship closing date.

How to apply

There are three steps to your scholarship application.

  1. Apply for your chosen course. You can see all of the courses we offer on our prospectus. You must have applied for a place on one of our courses before the scholarship application deadline or your application will not be considered. 
  2. Submit a Transform Together scholarship application form.
  3. Send your academic transcripts to globalscholarshiptranscripts@shu.ac.uk.

The closing date for Transform Together scholarship applications is 31 May 2023.

The application form

We will use your application form to understand what makes you stand out. Tell us about your achievements so far, and about how you will be an ambassador for the University during and after your studies.

The form will also ask for your student identifier (SI) number. This is an eight-digit number that we sent you after processing your application.

Your scholarship application will not be considered if you do not provide your SI number on the online scholarship application form.

What happens next

If you are successful, we will contact you at the end of June. This will be by email using the email address provided on your scholarship application. Please also check your spam folder for an email from us.

The scholarship will be applied as a reduction of fees for your first year of study.

Unfortunately, due to the large number of applications that we receive, we are unable to give individual feedback if your application is not successful.
