University of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield is one of the UK’s top universities, with an international reputation for cutting-edge research, teaching excellence and an outstanding student experience.
From our beginnings in 1828 as the Sheffield School of Medicine, we received University Charter status in 1905. Our founding motto of Rerum Cognoscere Causas – “To discover the cause of things” – has been the driving force of our success in world class research and teaching, with outstanding public acknowledgement for our endeavours including several Nobel Prize winners, the award of 4 Queens Anniversary Prizes and numerous accolades and awards for our organisation and staff.
Our standing as a world-class university has been repeatedly confirmed by our excellent performance in rigorous external assessments. The Research Assessment Exercise 2008 confirmed our ranking among the top ten UK research-intensive universities. Our commitment to innovative curriculum development and delivery and “the Sheffield Graduate” experience has been recognised as outstanding and received commendations in our Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) audit. On an international level, we are ranked 24th in Europe and 77th in the world by China’s Shanghai Jiao Tong 2008 academic ranking of world class universities. The Virgin 2009 Alternative Guide to British Universities says: “Sheffield is a top university across the board”.
With around 6,000 staff and 24, 000 students representing more than 120 nationalities, our efforts in discovery benefit from the rich diversity and talent of our university community.
The University of Sheffield AMRC builds on the success of the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing, creating a cluster of industry-focused manufacturing R&D centres and supporting facilities.

The AMRC is based on the outskirts of Sheffield one of the greenest cities in England, with 200 woodlands and public parks. The main campus of the University is only 10 minutes’ drive from the Peak district national park.
