Scholarships and bursaries
We are investing over £4 million in 2016–17 to provide a package of bursaries and financial support to students from England including schemes which will mean even more students can access financial support from the University.
The government has proposed that from 2017/18, new students on nursing, midwifery and pre-registration courses under the allied health professions in England will no longer receive an NHS grant.
However, it has been decided that postgraduate pre-registration students will receive an NHS bursary for the academic year 2017/18.
Note: Deadline extended to Sunday 20 August 2017
The Department of Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University, through the support of The Institute of Mechanical Engineers & AESSEAL® is offering three full fee scholarships for female UK students studying a postgraduate engineering course in the 2017/18 academic year.
Scholarships are awarded to ambitious female students who can demonstrate not only excellent academic achievement but also ambition, determination and dedication. Applications for September 2017 and January 2018 start dates are open until Sunday 20 August 2017.
We offer a support and scholarship programme for talented athletes. Scholarships of up to £6,000 are awarded to student athletes in addition to a comprehensive high performance support package.
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 undergraduate 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.
