Entry requirements

Normally a UK honours degree (first or upper second class) or a UK masters degree. We consider candidates with other qualifications individually.

You must have a relevant UK masters degree with a substantial research training element to apply for direct PhD registration.

If English is not your first language you typically need an IELTS 7.0 score with a minimum of 7.0 in all skills or equivalent. If your English language skill is currently below IELTS 7.0 we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English score.

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
