How to Apply

Step 1 - Apply Online

If you are currently in Year 11 in the Sheffield area you will apply online through UCAS Progress with help from your school. If you are applying outside of Sheffield you can apply online on our course pages by clicking the Apply Now button.

If you are unsure which course is right for you, please visit an open day to get an idea of what’s on offer or contact our careers team on 0114 260 2600 who will be able to help you.


Step 2 - We’ll let you know we’ve received your application

Check UCAS Progress for our acknowledgement or, if you have applied through the website, keep an eye on your emails.


Step 3 - Application Processing

Our expert team will process your application. Please make sure you pop your telephone number on your application as we may need to contact you to discuss further.


Step 4 - Your 1st Choice

If you meet the entry requirements we will make you an offer. If you don’t think you’ll get the grades do not worry. We can help you explore alternative courses for you.


Step 5 - Offer Made

We’ll make you a conditional offer. If an interview or audition are required for your chosen course we will contact you to inform you of the date.


Step 6 - Keeping in Touch

If anything changes and you don’t want to do the course you originally applied for don’t worry, just get in touch and we’ll help you move forward or apply for something else.


Step 7 - A Taste of The Sheffield College

You’ll be invited to attend a transition event to meet your tutors and some of the people who will be on your course.


Step 8 - Enrol

You’ll be invited to attend an enrolment session towards the end of August (don’t worry, we’ll contact you nearer the time with the exact date and time). You’ll need to bring things like your exam certificates and ID with you. If you don’t get the grades for your original course do not panic! Come to enrolment and we can arrange an alternative course for you.
