Excellent university ranking

The University of Sheffield continues to demonstrate a commitment to outstanding performance with a top 15 ranking in the UK, awarded by The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2017.

The University also has a number of high rankings in individual subjects, awarded by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017. In the top 20, Business Studies ranks in 20th, Chemistry ranks in 14th, while Engineering and Chemical Engineering both rank in 11th. We are proud to announce further excellence in the top 10 with Computer Science ranking in 8th, Politics in 8th, and Communication and Media studies ranking in 3rd.

Outstanding student performance

The University of Sheffield's excellent progression rate saw an incredible 100% of our students who travelled to Sheffield from Singapore progress to the University for their degree. A further 80% of our Korean students and 73% of our Chinese students also progressed directly to the University following their course at the International College.

One of our students, Siyue Wang, was awarded the China Merit Scholarship by the University of Sheffield. Siyue studied the International Foundation Year in Science and Engineering and plans to progress to study Civil Engineering. The China Merit Scholarship will provide Siyue with 50% off the annual tuition fee for the undergraduate programme. She said of her experience:

"The University of Sheffield International College is a really good place to study or to socialise. I was lucky enough to meet a number of very qualified and super nice teachers who provided huge help and support with my progression. To come here to study is the best decision I made. I have obtained not only useful academic learnings, but also some precious skills which may benefit for a lifelong time!"

Merit scholarships are regularly awarded to students from the International College in support of their dedication to academics and future goals. For the 2015-2016 academic year, over 20 scholarships were awarded to top performers from the International College, with five of those being prestigious merit scholarships.
