You need a 2.2 degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline or significant relevant experience.
Use section 9 (page 7) of the application form to write down the kind of work you are interested in doing after graduating and how the course will help you achieve your goals (max 500 words). Any other supporting material should be included in the application form or a single PDF document.
Most applicants have backgrounds in fashion design and fashion management. If you don't have a design or management background, we will consider your application providing you can clearly articulate informed reasons for wanting to complete the course. This must be done through a PDF document that includes a CV and written statement outlining why you are suitable for the course, supported by fashion and design images, graphics and other visual material.

English language requirements
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.
Months of entry

You learn to push the boundaries of design thinking and produce a body of work that challenges mainstream industry. Your studies take place in a collaborative environment where you work on live briefs and have the opportunity to exhibit your work to tutors and fellow students.
