Entry requirements

Normally an honours degree (2.2 or above) or equivalent in any subject.

Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.5 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 6.5 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.

You may also be considered if you do not hold a degree but can provide evidence of relevant professional experience.

We encourage applications from UK and international candidates who

• have a diversity of backgrounds

• are considering a career in journalism

• show the required aptitude and potential

We base our selection criteria on your relevant experience and potential for development. Previous experience of journalism is preferable, but not necessary.

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.
