Entry requirements

Normal entry requirements are at least a second class honours degree from a UK institution in a relevant engineering or science subject, or an equivalent qualification from the UK or overseas. If you hold another qualification, for example an HND, plus relevant industrial experience, we will consider your application. Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.
