How to apply

Personal Statement

In making offers we are particularly interested in your personal statement. You should supply a personal statement of approximately 300 words in length. In this personal statement you should outline your reasons for applying and any other information you want to include in support of your application (such as related work experience).

We would like you to consider the following questions:

  • Why do you want to study at Masters level?
  • What are your reasons for wanting to study this programme?
  • What particularly interests you about this area of study?
  • Why do you want to study at the University of Sheffield?

Application deadlines

There is no final deadline for applications but we recommend that you apply by the end of June, as staff holidays mean that there will be delays processing applications during July and August.

Please note that you must be able to give proof that you satisfy the entry requirements for your chosen programme. Furthermore, if you wish to apply for funding, you must have applied for a place to study before submitting an application for funding. Information regarding entry requirements and deadlines for funding can be found via the related links box on the right-hand side.
