About University of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield was founded over a hundred years ago, founded on the aspirations and financial support of the people of Sheffield. They wanted to establish a university which would benefit their economy, health and children.
These far-sighted men and women could only have wondered at what would follow. Today we are a global community and our citizenship stretches around the world into over 150 countries.
Being a civic university means that we are a place for open debate, for working together to solve problems and making partnerships which challenge and inspire new thinking. Sheffield is open to people, to change and to possibility.
