Sheffield top
in the north

 English and theatre graduate Helen Monks.

The University of Sheffield was named the top university in the north of England for producing employable graduates by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. This result reflects the preparation our students receive in their courses and a wide range of related activities, work experience, enterprise support and volunteering. Actor Helen Monks (BA English and Theatre 2014) – who has appeared in Channel 4’s Raised by Wolves and the BBC’s Upstart Crow – said the University played a key role in helping her realise the opportunities available to her post-graduation: “The Careers Service was so helpful, especially for students studying humanities. It helps you to work out how to be employable and gives you encouragement on how to use the skills you’ve learnt at university and apply them in the real world.”

“A degree from Sheffield gives students vital skills to help them build a successful and rewarding career in their chosen industries.”

The University has partnerships with a range of employers both in the UK and all over the world who work with us to boost the employment prospects of students. Paul Fennell, Head of Careers and Employability, added, “Leading employers recruit Sheffield students once they finish their studies but, importantly, they also work with our students during their degree through a range of workshops, internships and placements to boost their employability and prepare them for the graduate jobs market. A degree from Sheffield gives students vital skills to help them build a successful and rewarding career in their chosen industries.”
