Entry requirements

Normally you need:

  • a 2.2 degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline or significant relevant experience
  • appropriate study plans, including an indication of possible project topics and clear, appropriate and realistic learning aims
  • a high level of creative ability, as evidenced by a portfolio of work
  • ability to discuss design issues critically and confidently

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 a minimum of 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.

If you do not have such academic qualifications we may consider your application individually, based on your personal, professional and work experience, and other formal qualifications. You may also be able to claim credit points which can reduce the amount of time it takes to complete your qualification at Sheffield Hallam. Find out more
