How to apply to Sheffield Hallam as an international student
If you are from outside of the UK and want to apply to a Sheffield Hallam University course, then this video explains the application and enrolment process.
The application process is different depending on which study level you are interested in and whether you are an EU or international-fee paying student.
To apply for our International Foundation Programme in Art, Design and Media, Business, Law and Social Sciences or Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), please complete the application form and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application form includes a checklist of the information and supporting documents that you need to provide.
On the application form, please specify which undergraduate degree you would like to progress to from the International Foundation Programme. You do not need to complete a separate application form for your chosen undergraduate degree.
To apply for an undergraduate course, you should apply directly to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
We recommend that you apply through UCAS. If you are an international (non-EU) student and would prefer to apply to us direct, then you can contact email@example.com for an application form. If you are an EU student you can apply direct via our EU agents.
To apply for a postgraduate course, you should complete our online application form. Visit your individual course page at www.shu.ac.uk/prospectus and complete the application form.
If you are applying through one of our agents they are able to complete the application form on your behalf.
For a clear text or large print application form call +44 (0)114 225 5555.
There is no fixed application deadline for most postgraduate courses, but you should submit your application form to us as soon as possible as courses do fill up. International students also need to allow for time to apply for a visa.
Once you have decided in which area you would like to perform research, we encourage you to have an informal discussion with staff in the relevant research centre. We recommend that you have a clear, detailed research proposal ready beforehand.
You are asked to provide full details of your academic and work background and most applications require the names of two academic referees.
When considering an application the University must ensure the research proposal is appropriate, the applicant is suitably qualified and adequate supervision and facilities are available.
After enrolling, you must submit a formal research proposal within three months to the University's Research Degrees Sub-Committee for approval.
There is no formal deadline – we consider applications throughout the year.
If you need help with your application or would like some advice on study options, you can contact one of our offices in Sheffield, China, Pakistan, Nigeria, South Asia and South East Asia, recruitment agents in your country or a British Council office in your area.
You can also meet one of our representatives at the events and fairs we attend in your country. You can find more information about our courses, discuss your qualifications and find out about student life at the University.
