International arrivals

A very warm welcome to Sheffield Hallam University, we look forward to meeting you here in Sheffield.

Arrival times for students starting in September 2023

To arrive in good time for International Orientation and your course induction, you should aim to arrive on campus by Tuesday 12 September 2023 at the latest. If you arrive at Manchester airport between 2 – 12 September you will benefit from the free airport pick up service.

If you are arriving outside our Meet and Greet desk opening times, the main University buildings might be closed. You can call our 24-hour helpline on 0800 073 1318. Make a note of this before you travel. You should also contact your landlord in advance to confirm your arrival time.

If you cannot make it to Sheffield by that date you will be able to request a deferral to the next intake by emailing

If you plan to bring dependants with you, please read our guidance for international students with families.


Follow this timeline (coming soon) and complete the key tasks to ensure a smooth transition to study in Sheffield Hallam University.

Key tasks

Pay your fees

If you are an international postgraduate taught or undergraduate applicant, you are required to pay £3,000 deposit before you receive your Confirmation of Acceptance for Study (CAS) from Sheffield Hallam University. You will then also pay an additional £5,000 before you enrol at the University.

Plan your arrival

Get support

Before you arrive in the UK you can join our online Pre-departure Briefings, live Q&A sessions, or watch video presentations. Get answers to your preparation and arrival questions.

Once you are in Sheffield, visit our on-campus Meet & Greet desk with your questions, as many times as you need.

Collect your BRP card

If you used the University ACL code in your visa application, you will be able to collect your BRP from us.

To check if your BRP is ready for collection, click on the link below. If you can see 'International Experience - BRP Collection' in the Appointment Type list, you can book to collect. If you can't see the BRP Collection appointment, please search again after a couple of days.

Once you have collected your BRP please go immediately to get your immigration documents verified and complete your enrolment. Dates, times and location for the document checking will be announced here closer to the September start. 

If you did not use the University ACL code, collect your BRP from the Post Office at 33-35 Charles Street.
