The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 provides students and their parents with an invaluable first reference point on the path to finding a university place. It contains full profiles of all universities. The academic league table is made up of eight indicators including student satisfaction with teaching quality and their wider student experience, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, and degree completion rates.
Professor Koen Lamberts, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, said: “I am pleased to see the University of Sheffield recognised for its excellent graduate prospects, outstanding student satisfaction and world-class learning and teaching.
“We are committed to equipping our students with the experience and skills to shine in a competitive job market, providing them with a range of opportunities to access placements and internships with globally recognised employers during their studies.
“University of Sheffield graduates go on to make a considerable difference to the world we live in, and this is something we are incredibly proud of.”
