Advice for students on placement
Students on health, social care and education placements should plan to attend as scheduled.
Health and social care students on placement will be tested through the NHS testing regime as part of the placement and do not need to take part in the Hallam testing programme.
Education placement students are not required by their school to be tested before attending, so there is no requirement to use the Hallam testing programme for your education placement.
If you are returning to Sheffield from overseas, check the FCO travel advice pages and follow the guidance for quarantine and completing a passenger locator form before you return.
What to expect from the test
Our test centre is in Owen Building on City Campus. Your appointment will take up to 30 minutes in total, and you will receive your results within an hour.
When you book you will receive a confirmation note with advice on where to go and what to bring. You can also find that information on our page about how testing works.
Tests are fulfilled through the NHS Track and Trace system, and the results will not be shared with the University. We will send you a text and email on the day of your test with advice on what to do next.
