The University of Sheffield has earned overall top place results in the Times Higher Education Survey 2014, up from third last year.
The poll, which surveyed 14,300 students across the country, ranks the city institution highly in all 21 aspects covered by the survey, including a first-place finish for "I would recommend my university to a friend".
Other top-place finishes include the “good students’ union” and “good social life,” helping to secure the overall number one ranking out of 111 UK universities.
Its not just social aspects that rank the university highly though, it finished joint-third in the “well-structured courses” category, behind only Oxford and Cambridge.
Perhaps senior lecturer Dr Euginia Cheng’s food and wine-based youtube maths classes, which We Love Sheffield recently featured, added to the course scores!
Paul White, pro vice-chancellor for learning and teaching, told Times Higher Education: “It shows we have a good all-round offer, excelling on both the academic and social sides.”
The University of Sheffield has today published a video (above) to its youtube channel dedicated to the 25,000 students and 7,000 staff “who amaze and inspire us every day.”
The video boasts of UoS’s number one ranking for accommodation and facilities as well as its place in the greenest, happiest and the safest large city in the UK.
Last years’ top ranked University of East Anglia dropped into third place in the overall chart, the University of Bath was polled into second place.
Sheffield Hallam University ranked 48th overall.
