Application timeline

When What

From September 2017

You can apply for our undergraduate courses

Apply online through UCAS. You can save your application form as you go along, so you don't need to complete it all at once.

From December

Apply for accommodation at Sheffield Hallam

Once you have received an offer and made your firm and insurance choices you can apply for accommodation.

15 January

Deadline for the majority of undergraduate courses

Applications need to arrive at UCAS by 18:00 (UK time) on 15 January 2018. If your application is received by this point it is guaranteed to be considered by the universities you have applied to.

From February

Apply for student funding

Apply through Student Finance England. Find out more on the government's website.

25 February

UCAS Extra opens

If you've used all five of your choices and you've not received any offers you might be able to add another choice through UCAS Extra.

Before end of April

Find out if you have an offer

If you applied by 15 January you should receive a decision on your application from us by the end of April, via UCAS Track. (Don't panic if you haven't! Call our admissions team on 0114 225 5533.)

If you're offered a place, it will be one of three types.

• Conditional offer - you have been offered a place as long as you meet the conditions (usually based on your results).
• Sheffield Hallam Achievement offer - we consider you to be an exceptionally strong candidate and we're confident that you will achieve the grades that you are predicted. If you make us your firm choice, we will waive the academic conditions of your offer, meaning that your place with us is guaranteed. Your results are still very important to your future employability and ability to succeed at University so you should still work hard to meet or exceed your predicted grades.
• Unconditional offer - you have been offered a place without any further conditions. So if you accept, you're definitely on the course.
