Reputation and ranking

The University of Sheffield has been independently rated number 1 in the UK for media and journalism by the Complete University Guide 2020 and the Guardian university league tables for 2019 and 2018.

A group of people meeting in Mappin Street.

We are also rated in the UK's top 5 by The Times/Sunday Times University Guide.

For several years now Sheffield has been the only university to feature in the top 5 of all three league tables for our subject area.


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 score well in the league tables. So come and meet us on 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.
