Times Higher Education (THE)

Times Higher Education (THE) provides analysis and insight on higher education. The University of Sheffield's institutional subscription gives unlimited access to THE content online (including weekly digital editions of the magazine and digital access to all rankings supplements) as well as access to the THE app for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices. The app can be downloaded from your app store provider.


For anywhere, anytime access, you need to register for a personal THE account, which you'll use to log in to the THE website and app. You must register using your full University of Sheffield email address (i.e. use @sheffield.ac.uk not @shef.ac.uk) so that your personal THE account is associated with the University's institutional subscription.

  • Click the 'Register' link on any THE page and complete the brief registration form.
  • You'll need to create a THE username and password for yourself. Note that the username is used in public-facing parts of the THE website such as commenting on articles.


If you experience any difficulties in using this eResource please call the Library HelpDesk on extension 27200 or email library@sheffield.ac.uk.
