Although the majority of applicants continue to come through an A-level route, we accept many other qualifications to an equivalent level from within the UK and around the world.
Equivalent requirements (to AAA at A Level) in some common qualifications are as follows:
We DO NOT currently accept the following alternative qualifications: Advanced Apprenticeships; Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE); Irish FETAC level 5/6.
We consider each application on its own merit. Mature students (aged 21 or over) should demonstrate that their skills, qualifications, experience and potential are relevant for study at degree level. We normally expect mature applicants to have achieved level 3 qualifications as described in the National Qualifications Framework. If you have been away from education for a long time we recommend that you gain some recent academic experience and you may find an Access to Education or Foundation programme beneficial. We normally invite mature applicants to interview. We suggest that you contact us directly to discuss your individual situation. You can read more about the ways in which The University of Sheffield encourages and supports mature students.
