The University of Sheffield is special. A world class institution at the heart of our city. Driven by outstanding people working as One University. We believe our work has the power to change lives. Not just for those who study, teach and do research here, but for those who benefit from the breakthroughs we make every day. We continue to be recognised for our outstanding teaching and research and are home to 30,000 of the brightest students and over 8,000 staff from more than 140 countries around the world. We want Sheffield to be an international centre of excellence for centuries to come. We’re proud of our past. Yet it’s the future that really excites us.
