Other admission requirements
Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.
-A first class BE in an relevant discipline, or a good second class BE with a strong performance in mechanical and manufacturing subjects
-A four year Bachelors degree in an relevant discipline, with an overall average of at least 80 per cent or equivalent
-A good honours degree or equivalent in an relevant subject
Normally one from: an honours degree (2.2 or above) in a science or engineering subject; suitable professional qualifications in an engineering field; a degree in any discipline plus at least one year of relevant experience; a diploma in a technological area plus at least three years of relevant experience.
