Study abroad at Sheffield Hallam University with scholarship

Enhance your studies and experience life in the UK with the Study Abroad Programme at Sheffield Hallam University. Meet new people and expand your horizons as you study with us for one semester or a full year.
The Study Abroad programme enables you to study with Sheffield Hallam University on a short-term basis and gain credits towards your degree, even if we don’t have an exchange agreement in place with your University. This provides you with a wider choice of subjects to choose from.
If you plan to study for one semester, you can choose from a September or January start date. If you’d like to come to Sheffield for a full year, you’ll start in September.
Applicants for the September 2019 and January 2020 intake are encouraged to apply for our Study Abroad scholarship.
