Applying to University

Please note that due to the coronavirus outbreak, there have been some changes to the application process. You can find Sheffield Hallam’s latest advice for applicants here, while UCAS continues to provide updates here. The information below reflects the “normal” application process and is mostly still accurate, despite the Coronavirus adjustments.  

You can apply to Sheffield Hallam online, through UCAS. You can apply from mid-September until the end of June, but try to submit your application by 15 January, because after this date courses can be closed to applications. If you apply after the end of June, you should apply through Clearing.
