Better late than never, here is the news from November that The University of Sheffield has been named (UK) University of the Year at the Times Higher Education awards. From Forgetoday.com:
“Judges praised the University’s “determination and grit” in focusing on its local community and said it had “stood out as a result of a strategy based on its values and rooted in its founding principles”.
The University beat off competition from five other universities to land the prestigious award.
The awards, now in their seventh year, look to celebrate the excellence and achievements of UK higher education institutions.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: “This award is thoroughly well deserved. I’ve seen first hand the cutting edge research Sheffield University is doing in a wide range of fields, from advanced manufacturing to translational neuroscience and everything in between.”
