Part-time and CPD fees

  • Course fees

    If you are starting in 2019/20 it will cost £9,250 charged pro rata for UK and EU students to study part-time at Sheffield Hallam, based on the number of credits you study. More details can be found on our student portal.

    Tuition fees for part-time UK and EU students who commenced their studies prior to 2017/18 – will remain charged at £9,000 pro rata per year.

    If you have deferred your 2018/19 place, you will pay the tuition fees applicable to students starting in 2019/20.

    Tuition fees are reviewed and may be revised on an annual basis prior to the beginning of the academic year in question.

    In all cases, so long as you are eligible to claim a tuition fee loan from the relevant authority, you will not have to pay any tuition fees upfront, as a UK or EU student, whether full-time or part-time.

  • Employer funding

    It might be possible to get funding for part or your entire course from your employer. Many of our part-time students are funded this way as their employers recognise the benefits part-time study can bring to their organisation as well as you personally.

    We recommend approaching your manager or HR department to find out whether any schemes are already in place and explaining how your course will impact on the business.

    You can ask them to contact us if they want to know more and we will support you in any way we can.

  • Tuition fee loans

    Students starting a part-time course in academic year 2016/17 can apply now at the UK Government student finance site. If you are applying for the 2017/18 academic year, the application process usually commences around beginning of August.

  • Progression scholarship

    For the academic year 2017/18, you could qualify for a discount of up to 25% towards your postgraduate course fees if you have studied with us before. 

    Our postgraduate progression scholarships are open to UK/EU and International graduates on most full-time and part-time courses.

    • 25% Scholarship
    You may be eligible for this scholarship if you have studied and completed your full undergraduate degree at Sheffield Hallam within the last three academic years and are enrolling onto a postgraduate taught course.

    • 10% Scholarship
    You may be eligible for this scholarship if you only studied part of your postgraduate degree at Sheffield Hallam or graduated more than three academic years ago. The 10% scholarship is also available to students on postgraduate research courses who have studied their undergraduate or postgraduate degree with us. 


    • Postgraduate progression scholarships are only available to students on non-regulated postgraduate courses. You will not be eligible for these scholarships if you are studying on Department of Health funded courses, PGCE programmes or the Masters in Architecture.

    • Postgraduate progression scholarships are only available to students who have been awarded a Sheffield Hallam undergraduate degree. You will not be eligible for these scholarships if you have only completed a foundation degree or HND programme with us.

    • Postgraduate progression scholarships are only available to students who are enrolled on a full postgraduate course. You will not be eligible if you only enrol for one module.

    • Students are only eligible for one discount, if your fee has already been discounted by another arrangement then you will not be eligible for a postgraduate progression discount.

    • The 25% scholarship is only available to students who have studied at Sheffield Hallam or have studied part of their degree at Sheffield Hallam as part of a completed Erasmus programme. If you have completed a Sheffield Hallam degree at another location you may still be eligible for the 10% scholarship.

    • The 25% scholarship is only available to students who started in the first year (level 4) and studied their full degree with us. If you started your undergraduate degree at Sheffield Hallam in the second year (level 5) or final year (level 6) then you may still be eligible for the 10% scholarship.

    • Postgraduate progression scholarships are only available on the first postgraduate course. If you choose to study a second postgraduate course then you will not be eligible for a discount. However, if you wish to progress from a postgraduate taught course to a postgraduate research course, the 10% progression discount may be applicable on your research course.

    If you are paying your own fees and your annual tuition fee is more than £200, you can pay by instalments. If your fees are £200 or under, you must pay the full amount when you receive the invoice.
