Doctorate Extension Scheme

Sheffield Hallam University offers sponsorship under the Tier 4 Doctorate Extension Scheme (DES), a Home Office scheme which grants an additional 12 months of leave in the UK to Tier 4 Phd students who successfully complete their doctorates at Sheffield Hallam. 

Successful applicants can use the additional 12 months to gain further experience in their chosen field, seek skilled work, or develop plans to set up as an entrepreneur.

You must apply during the final stages of your PhD. Please attend a visa eligibility and information appointment with an Adviser in the International Experience Team who will give you further information. You can book an appointment through the Student Support Services Reception, Level 5, Owen Building.
