Message received from Sheffield College on 20th March 2020

"We want to reassure you that the College is committed to ensuring that applicants for September 2020 are not adversely affected, especially students who were due to take exams this summer. 

If you have already attended an interview, then you will have an offer or have been provided with further advice and guidance.

If you have not yet had an interview, then we will automatically be making course offers based on your predicted grades. After you have received this offer you will then receive an Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) phone call from our Admissions and Student Funding team to provide you with additional information about the College and the course. In due course you will also be invited in for a taster day at College as and when the College re-opens.

We want to ensure that all applicants are well informed and supported throughout this critical transition period to college and are fully committed to ensuring that all students have the best possible start to college life.

We are not able to continue with face-to face interviews given the government health guidance regarding the Coronavirus.

We are currently working on plans and processes in relation to enrolment for new applicants who were due to take exams this summer and this will be communicated next week.

It is really important that you continue to study and follow the advice from your teachers. Even if you do not have to take examinations this year, you need to carry on learning so you are well prepared for your next steps.

We look forward to speaking with you. Do get in touch if you have any queries or concerns. You can email us at or call 0114 2602600.

Please do take good care of yourself. We’ve been posting regular updates to help our student and staff community. To find out more, please visit:
