Applicants must have sufficient English language to successfully complete their course. For entry to our distance learning courses, applicants who have successfully completed a degree at a university where English was the language of study, such as the University of Malta, and provide sufficient evidence of this, will not normally be required to complete a separate English Language qualification.

If you have not done so the standard English language requirement for the Masters programme is as below:
Masters Programme – an overall IELTS score of 6.5 with at least 5.5 in each component, or the equivalent in an alternative qualification.

You can find details of the alternative English language qualifications accepted by the University of Sheffield on our English Language requirements webpage.
