14 How to choose a leading international teaching and research university One of just 18 in the UK in the 2012 QS World University Rankings top 100 Cambridge UCL Oxford Imperial College Edinburgh King's College Bristol Manchester Glasgow Warwick Sheffield LSE Nottingham Southampton Birmingham Durham St Andrews Leeds Sheffield is rated 66th in the world in the 2012 QS World University Rankings. 66 TH Choosing a university is a difficult decision to make. An excellent starting point is to find out about the academic strength of a university in the subject you re interested in. The most objective and reliable sources of information on UK universities are the national assessments of teaching and research quality. These rigorous assessments are carried out by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). The results of these assessments place the University of Sheffield amongst the top-ranking universities in the UK. We are in the top ten for research power in the Russell Group, the group of leading UK research-intensive universities. Ninety-three per cent of our academic staff are involved in research which is internationally recognised and in many cases world-leading. For details, see pages Other sources of information Sheffield is rated 66th in the world in the 2012 QS World University Rankings. The QS World University Rankings is an annual league table of the top 700 universities in the world. It is considered to be the best-known and respected ranking of its kind. The rankings are based on four key pillars: research, teaching, employability and internationalisation. Results are based on academic reputation (40%), employer reputation (10%), faculty/student ratio (20%), citations per faculty (20%), international faculty (5%) and international students (5%). The University of Sheffield is ranked 14th in the UK and 110th in the world according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. 12

Professor Aurora Plomer School of law 14

17 Teaching excellence 90% overall satisfaction score 4th In the Russell Group The quality of teaching in UK universities is assessed by the British government s Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). The QAA regularly carries out independent audits. It ensures that UK institutions are providing higher education, awards and qualifications of an acceptable quality and at an appropriate academic standard. The University of Sheffield was reviewed last in December 2012 and received a very positive report. The annual National Student Survey gathers undergraduates feedback on their experiences and is used to compare universities and colleges in the UK. The 2012 survey ranked Sheffield fourth in the Russell Group the top 24 researchintensive universities in the UK for its excellent learning experience for its students. The University has maintained an overall satisfaction score of 90 per cent for the second year running. 24 out of the University's 45 subjects received an overall satisfaction score of 90 per cent or above, with a further 20 subjects gaining a satisfaction score between per cent. our global reputation 15

22 my supervisor is very efficient, constant and hard working. He is always there when I need him to review my work, but also to give me advice in University-related matters. He has been a guide throughout all my adaption process to another academic system, and his style of giving me the independence to formulate and structure my own projects has helped me to improve my research skills. I m very happy to work with him. Dejanira Araiza Illan mexico Dejanira contacted me about doing a PhD after reading about the robotics work being done in our department. She was particularly interested in doing research on autonomous robotics. We then developed a research proposal upon which she was able to secure funding from the mexican government. Dr Tony Dodd Automatic control and Systems Engineering 20

23 our innovative work with industry and business Organisations such as Boeing, Rolls-Royce and the Wellcome Trust invest millions of pounds in the University because our staff are world leaders in their fields. Our strong links with companies like these guarantee the relevance of our degree programmes and equip our graduates for careers at the cutting edge of their chosen fields. our global reputation 21

24 Boeing AMRC Run by the University in partnership with industry, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing employs over 140 highly qualified researchers and engineers from around the globe. They work with over 60 businesses, from global leaders such as Boeing, Rolls-Royce, Messier Dowty and BAE Systems to local small businesses. The centre develops high-tech solutions for materials and machining for aerospace and other industries. It helps position the UK as a major player in advanced manufacturing. It's also the base for a new AMRC, which will provide manufacturing expertise for the new generation of civil nuclear energy facilities. The AMRC is an internationally recognised centre of excellence. In recognition of this achievement, the University was awarded a Queen s Anniversary Prize in 2007 the highest honour for a UK university. In May 2011, Boeing recognised the AMRC as their Supplier of the Year in the international (technology) sector, the first UK-based organisation to win the award. The professors we had were exceptional, they really knew what they were talking about and they were quite approachable as well. my masters was very inspirational because it s very cutting edge. It s not something that s already been implemented - it s something that will be in the future. What AcSE does fits in with what Rolls Royce or Aero Engine controls want. That s probably why it s quite easy for them to go and pick people from Sheffield, because they ve already got the knowledge and the skills. You ve got one less step to climb in the ladder essentially. Pravin Kuriakose msc control Systems India one of the few universities that really understands the link between research and industrial application. Sir Roger Bone, President of Boeing UK 22

25 Rolls-Royce Rolls-Royce plc works with a number of universities worldwide to support and develop research in academic centres of excellence. The company has established four University Technology Centres (UTCs) at Sheffield, more than at any other UK university. Technology solutions created in these centres have been put into use worldwide. our global reputation Rolls-Royce is the lead industry partner in a new 25 million Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre a joint initiative between the University, the University of Manchester and a group of business partners. It s based alongside the existing Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, which you can read about on page 22. Siemens The pioneering Sheffield-Siemens Wind Power Research Centre is the first of its kind in the UK. It brings together world-class academics, researchers and experts from industry to develop wind turbine generators for wind power systems, on and offshore. We were chosen by Siemens on the strength of the theoretical and applied research carried out by our Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Wellcome Trust Laboratories We received 13.6 million from this prestigious funding body to provide state-ofthe-art research laboratories for medical researchers. These laboratories are in key areas of neuroscience, infection and immunity, cancer, cardiovascular disease, bone biology, pathology and molecular genetics. We opened a 1 million gene screening facility in 2010 funded by the Wellcome Trust and our Department of Biomedical Sciences. It s the second only of its type in the world. GlaxoSmithKline Major pharmaceutical companies such as AstraZeneca, Pfizer, UCB and GlaxoSmithKline are sponsoring research in the molecular life sciences to develop new drugs and improve drug safety. We re also one of only a few universities to have two GlaxoSmithKline clinician scientists working at the University. Creating companies Simcyp We not only work with existing companies we also create spin-out companies, exploiting the knowledge generated through our research. Over the last five years we ve created more than 40 new companies. Many of these have gone on to form partnerships with industry so that they can carry on developing. Simcyp a company that spun out of the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in 2001 won a Queen s Award for Enterprise. The new technology it has developed allows pharmaceutical scientists to analyse how a drug is absorbed, distributed, metabolised and excreted in virtual populations of patients, prior to clinical trials in humans. The Sheffield-based company is ranked 15th on a list of the fastest growing businesses in the UK. 23

26 The business planning module is in my view a shining example of how to give students an awareness of the way that academic knowledge needs to be combined with practical application and business knowledge. This will help them succeed in the demanding 21st-century marketplace. Peter crawford Taylor & Emmett Students of the real world We work with business and industry to ensure our students benefit from an education that combines academic excellence with practical skills. The Department of Mechanical Engineering's Technology Strategy and Business Planning module is one example of this approach. The module enables final-year engineering students to collaborate with partners from business and industry, including manufacturers, marketers and bankers. The students develop solutions to real commercial problems and write accompanying business plans. Many of their ideas are developed into prototypes and functional products. For example, a walking frame for children with brittle bones was designed by Barry Tan and Lim Ji Hui, two Malaysian engineering students. This is now being sold across the UK, after being used by Sheffield Children s Hospital. This kind of real-world experience puts our students ahead of the game when it comes to applying for jobs. 24

27 What I really like about my course is the creativity and innovation in engineering as well as the opportunity to use the latest technologies to provide solutions to life s most challenging problems. martin Anih msc in Electronic Engineering Nigeria our global reputation 25

31 Sheffield gave me key transferable skills that helped me to stand out among graduates from other universities. Hi, my name is Harsh Srivastav and I graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from the University of Sheffield. I started working as an engineering consultant for a multinational engineering consultancy, Atkins, in london in September Having worked in the engineering sector for a year, I decided to challenge myself in a new direction. I got a job working for Barclays Group in their london headquarters in September I am currently working in a Global Financial Institutions team where I not only get to work with senior executives within the company but also get real experience of working with clients. The interview process was rigorous and there was tough competition for the limited number of places on the graduate programme. It is a very challenging and competitive environment to work in. I would have struggled without the great experience at Sheffield which helped prepare me for the difficult tasks I face every day. Sheffield gave me key transferable skills that helped me to stand out among graduates from other universities. I was supported along the way by my lecturers, careers advisers and peers. The University careers Service facilitates the job seeking process extremely well by organising careers fairs, employer presentations, skills sessions, cv clinics and one-to-one mock interview sessions. Now, more than ever, employers are looking for a more complete graduate, who is not only technically competent but also has the strong transferable skills needed to succeed in business today. my advice to any student who studies at Sheffield is to be proactive and make the most of their time by getting involved in the incredible amount of things happening in the University and the city. Harsh Srivastav, graduate BEng Electrical Engineering India Experience Sheffield 29

32 I really feel attached to the local community here and to other international students, especially those coming from the middle East and sharing more or less the same concerns.
