But remember...

There's far more to choosing a university than looking at rankings. Visit the places you're interested in. Talk to students. Look around. Get a feel for the university and the city.

We don't want you to choose Sheffield just because we're top of the league tables. So come and meet us at an open day. Get to know us on Twitter and Facebook. If you study with us, we want you to feel confident and happy that you're coming to the university that's right for you.
