How to apply

This page gives you step-by-step instructions on how to apply through clearing, so you know exactly what to expect. You can start your application when clearing opens in 2022.

Already applied through UCAS

If you didn’t get the results you needed for your first or second choice university, you can still find a place at Sheffield Hallam through clearing.

Here’s what you need for clearing and how it works in three simple steps.

Step 1: Check UCAS Track

Before you do anything else, check UCAS Track to see if your first or second choice university has confirmed your place.

If not, it’s time to enter clearing.

Step 2: Make the call

Call us on 0330 024 6390.

When you ring up, you’ll need a full list of your results, plus your GCSE grades. It’s also good to have your UCAS Personal ID number if you're registered with UCAS or your Sheffield Hallam student ID. This is an 8-digit number you can find on emails or letters sent by our admissions team.

Be prepared to talk about why you want to study the course. Think about what you wrote in your personal statement. You can find out how to apply with confidence here.

Selection events and interviews

For some courses (e.g. health profession courses and teacher education), you will be required to have an interview before a decision is made.

You’ll also need to send us evidence of your qualifications. A photo of them will do at this stage.

Step 3: Accept your offer

Once we receive your completed forms and evidence of your qualifications, we’ll set you up with a UCAS record and confirm you have a place on UCAS.

UCAS will notify you once this is complete, and then you can access UCAS Track to view your offer.
