The scheme is now open for nominations for students wanting to start at Sheffield Hallam in September 2023. If you are a student who falls into one of the groups we support, but do not have a supporter or would struggle to find a supporter to nominate you onto the scheme, please contact the SHU Progress team at SHU-Progress@shu.ac.uk or (0114) 225 4777 for further guidance.
You can join SHU Progress in the year you are applying to university. To get the most out of SHU Progress we encourage you to join just before or at the time you are applying to university, however SHU Progress has a programme of support and events throughout your application year and you can join anytime.
We require you to be nominated to SHU Progress by a supporter such as:
- your teacher or support worker in college
- a social worker
- your local authority personal advisor
- Foyer or supported housing support workers
- someone from a supporting charity such as Sheffield Young Carers
- a healthcare professional
The nomination can be made using this form.
The person nominating you must have your consent to share your personal information with us before completing an application form. We also request you read the privacy notice (PDF, 883.6KB) before being nominated so you are aware of how we use your data.
You can share this leaflet (PDF, 272.9KB) with your referee for their information.
