How to apply


All candidates for the full-time undergraduate degree programmes need to apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). You may also find it helpful to consult the general university admissions pages for prospective students

Students wishing to apply for our Applied Social Sciences part-time route please use this application form.  The part-time course is not dealt with by UCAS, instead this is a direct-application to the University.  You will still be able to come to open days and meet with staff.  You will be dealt with by the same administrators when you are here and the same academic staff.


Students wishing to apply for our MA in Social Research should complete the postgraduate application form.

Open day

Candidates for degree programmes will not normally be required to attend for interview, but anyone offered a place will be invited to attend an open day in the Sheffield Methods Institute.
