Enrol online

Before you enrol

You need an active Sheffield Hallam IT account to enrol. If you don't have one yet, activate your account.

If you’re an international taught student, you need to pay half of your fees before you enrol. Go to the international fee payment page. This does not apply to international research students.

When should I enrol?

We will email you an invitation to enrol about two weeks before your course starts. When you receive the email, enrol as soon as you can. You must enrol by your course start date.

You need to enrol to get loan payments, and there is often a gap before your first payment arrives. Try to enrol early, so that money reaches your account before the start of term.

What you need

During enrolment you will need:

  • your IT account username and password,
  • scanned copies of your entry qualifications, and
  • photo ID.

There is a reminder of your username in the email we sent you inviting you to enrol. If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it from the enrolment login screen.

If you don't know your username and can't find your enrolment email, check your spam and junk mail folders. The subject line of the email is 'Time to enrol at Sheffield Hallam'.

International students

If you're an international taught student, you must pay 50% of your fees for the year before you can enrol. This does not apply to International research students.

You should do this as soon as you can. Online payments can take up to 5 days to process, and bank transfers up to 4 weeks. The easiest and quickest option is to pay your fees online.

During enrolment you will also need:

  • your passport
  • your visa or other immigration documents.

There is a full list of documentation you might be asked for in our enrolment guidance for international students.

The enrolment form

If you have your enrolment invitation email, you can start completing the form now. 

After logging in, select 'My Enrolment and Fees' from the main menu.

There is more advice on completing the form below if you need it.

What to expect

The enrolment form usually takes about 20 minutes to complete. It can take longer depending on your course and circumstances.

There are several sections to complete, including your personal details, your course information and Hallam's terms and conditions. We will ask you to check information we already have about you, and add anything that is missing.

Saving your progress

Your information is saved automatically when you submit each section, so you can log out and come back if you need to.

If you need to go back to a previous page, use the section buttons on the form. Do not use the back button on your browser, as your progress will be lost.

Getting help

You will find help points on each page of the enrolment form. These provide more guidance, and a reminder of who to contact for help.

If you are still unsure you can contact us at enrolment@shu.ac.uk or on 0114 478 1478. The team is available Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm UK time.

After you enrol

We will send you an email to confirm your enrolment and tell you what to do next. The most important next steps are:

Conditional enrolment

If you have been conditionally enrolled, we will tell you at the end of enrolment.

We will also tell you what you need to do next. You might need to wait for further checks from us, or provide us with more information.

You can check the progress of your conditional enrolment at any time in My Student Record.

You can still get your Course Welcome Schedule and book Welcome Week events while you are conditionally enrolled. However, you will need to be fully enrolled before you can order a SHUcard or get student loan payments.

Loan payments

There is usually a gap between completing enrolment and getting money from your student loan.

It is a good idea to complete enrolment as soon as you can, so that your loan funds arrive before you start at Hallam.
