The University of Sheffield has ranked 105th in the world in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024, gaining nine places from 114th the previous year, as well as being ranked 13th in the UK.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings include 1,904 universities across 105 countries and regions, making them the largest university rankings to date, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.
The news follows a succession of other recent ranking successes for the University of Sheffield, including being ranked 18th in the UK and 3rd in ‘The North and North East by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2024. The same ranking showed that over 85 per cent of University of Sheffield graduates have gone into graduate-level employment or further study.
Earlier this month, the university was also awarded ‘University of the Year’ for Student Experience by the Daily Mail University Guide 2024, in which it ranked 11th in the UK and was recognised as performing highly for its work to support students who are the first in their family to go to university.
This also comes after the University of Sheffield’s NSS results which placed Sheffield top across the Russell Group universities for assessment and feedback and its Students’ Union, and in the top three for learning opportunities, student voice and mental health.
The University received the highest positive responses to the survey, which asked students to give feedback on their higher education experiences.
Earlier this year, the University of Sheffield’s Students’ Union was also voted the Whatuni Student Choice Award 2023 for Best Students’ Union, for the sixth year in a row, while the University was also nominated for the University of the Year and Student Life categories.
