When you received your formal offer to study from the University's Admissions team, you should have also received an email from  which invited you to set up and activate your IT account. Once you have activated your account you will have access to your University account in MUSE (My University of Sheffield Environment). From there you will have access to your University email account. If you haven't received this setup email within three days of receiving your offer, please contact

You should always use your email account for all university correspondence, as your unique email address would allow us to locate you very quickly in the system to access information we need to answer your enquiry. It also helps us to verify your identity. 

After you accept your unconditional offer and your student record is created on 29th August, your ‘application’ is complete and you are no longer with the Admissions Service. To avoid delays, please contact the department directly via and do not use admissions emails such as ‘’ 

After 29th August, you should quote your registration number (NOT APPLICATION NUMBER) when contacting the university. Only the admissions service has access to application numbers, academic departments and other on-campus services will need your registration number to verify your identity - your registration number should be 9 digits and start 230xxxxxx. Once registered, the registration number is printed on your Ucard.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 

Under the 2018 General Data Protection Regulation, University staff cannot release any information about prospective, current or existing students to a third party, including parents/agents, without that student’s permission.

For this reason, please always use your university email when contacting us, quoting your registration number to avoid delay. We will not speak to agents directly, or answer enquiries if we are not able to verify the students identity. 

Update Personal Emails on Student Record

Most international students have their agents' emails registered as their ‘personal emails’ on student records. This would prevent valuable information reaching the students at the start of the academic year, causing available delays and sometimes failure to complete registration by deadline. When students graduate, graduation information and transcripts are also delivered to personal email addresses.

Please follow instructions via the link below to check you have the correct personal emails on your record, and change it if necessary: Change your personal details
