The University of Sheffield was announced as one of the ‘most international’ universities by Times Higher Education, based on data collected for the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018. We were ranked 42nd out of the 800 leading universities worldwide.
A place in the highly regarded top 50 marks a significant increase in Sheffield’s international reputation in 2018. A key factor in this success has been the concerted effort at building overseas partnerships with the world’s top universities and industry, efforts which open opportunities for staff and student exchange, research collaboration and inward investment in the local economy.
I am deeply proud that this is a global university with over 140 nationalities represented on campus.”
The diversity of our student and staff body, and the extent to which our academics collaborate with international colleagues are also signs of the University’s global outlook. President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Keith Burnett said, “The University of Sheffield has always been internationally minded but recently we have focused even more on the partnerships we know are crucial not only to our research but which will also create opportunities for our students and our region.
“I am deeply proud that this is a global university with over 140 nationalities represented on campus and that our city has always made clear that staff and students from around the world are welcome. We know these students and staff make a huge contribution to academic life, knowledge and our economic growth as a nation.”
