Undergraduate scholarships and bursaries
We are investing almost £5 million in 2021–22 to provide a package of bursaries and financial support to our students including schemes which will mean even more students can access financial support from the University.
"I received a scholarship of £1,000 in my first year as a result of my grades at college, which really helped me make the most of my first year. It helped because I was still getting to grips with budgeting and I made a bit of a hash of it. It meant that I could afford to go to the events I wanted to in Sheffield."

We offer the Student Success Scholarship to priority group students, including those from low income backgrounds on undergraduate courses starting from 2021/22 onwards. To qualify you must be recognised as having home fee status by Student Finance England/Wales/NI and be a full or part time student liable for the current tuition fee (pro rata for part time students). Payments typically range from £200 to £2,000 depending on your circumstances.
If you're leaving care and commencing study with us in 2021/22, we guarantee to provide you with a bursary package of £3,500 a year.
The Care Leaver Package guarantees a bursary of up to £1,500 a year and an additional award from the Student Success Scholarship of £2,000.
"To not have to worry about my living situation and the costs involved in studying has been so reassuring. Because my past has been so unstable, I'm always thinking about the future, that's why I've used the financial support I receive to start saving for when I leave University and go off into the world."

This bursary is to help you during your placement year. The amount you receive will typically be based on the amount you have previously received from the Student Success Scholarship.
We will be offering two Sanctuary Scholarships (one for undergraduate and one for postgraduate study) from September 2021 to support talented students who have sought asylum in the UK. The scholarships are jointly funded by the University and through generous donations from former students.
If you compete in sport at the highest level, you could receive a comprehensive high performance support package worth up to £3,000. This programme is also open for international students.
The Department of Natural and Built Environment (NBE) are offering four scholarships for undergraduate students joining the department in September 2020 on an eligible course.
The scholarships have been made possible through the generous support of donors and aim to support students from disadvantaged or under-represented backgrounds. This year our donors include house builder Barratt Developments Plc., real etate investment company Europa Capital, and individual donors from the Sheffield City Polytechnic Urban Land Economics class of 1979.
Successful applicants will receive a non-repayable grant of £3,000 per year for three years, to help with living costs.
A non-repayable maintenance grant of £5,000 is available for pre-registration nursing or midwifery students, and those on some allied health professional courses.
For further fees and funding information on nursing, midwifery, allied health professions and social work courses please visit our health and social care webpages.
Sheffield Hallam Access and Participation Plans
Each year the university produces an Access and Participation Plan, detailing the fees we wish to charge, financial support that we will offer to students and our activities to support widening participation. Access and Participation Plans are formally approved by the Office for Students (OFS) and you can find a full record of Sheffield Hallam University's Access and Participation Plans on the OFS website.
