The history of the University of Sheffield stretches back to 1828, when the Sheffield School of Medicine was founded. However, the University Charter was granted in 1905 only.
At present, the University of Sheffield has over 25,000 students from 116 countries from all over the world, enrolled in various courses in a wide range of subjects. The population of the workforce is 6,000. The University of Sheffield has seven faculties: Faculty of Architectural Studies, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Pure Science, and the Faculty of Social Sciences.
The University offers a wide range of course programmes at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The students can enroll in either full-time course programme or in part-time programmes.
The research partners and clients of the university include Boeing, Rolls Royce, Unilever, Boots, AstraZeneca, GSK, ICI, Slazenger, and many more household names, as well as U.K. and overseas government agencies and charitable foundations. Their International partnerships include Worldwide Universities Network (USA, Europe, and China), and our partnership with Leeds and York Universities (the White Rose Consortium) has combined research power greater than that of either Oxford or Cambridge.
