The University of Sheffield ble grunnlagt for over hundre år siden, tuftet på ambisjoner og økonomisk støtte av folket i Sheffield. De ønsket å etablere et universitet som vil dra nytte deres økonomi, helse og barn.

Disse fremsynte menn og kvinner kunne bare har lurt på hva som ville følge. I dag er vi et globalt samfunn og vår statsborgerskap strekker seg rundt hele verden i løpet av 150 land. Som byen vår, våre ansatte og studenter har røtter og forbindelser over hele planeten vår.

Hva vi fortsette å gjøre, er basert på våre verdier og forankret i våre grunnleggende prinsipper. Vår tilnærming inspirerer innovative samarbeid på tvers av fagområder og med enkeltpersoner, bedrifter og organisasjoner til å løse de mer presserende problemene vi står overfor, både nær hjemmet og rundt om i verden.

Å være en kommunal universitet betyr at vi er et sted for åpen debatt, for å arbeide sammen for å løse problemer og gjøre partnerskap som utfordrer og inspirerer til nytenkning. Vi er åpne for folk, å endre og til mulighet.

Vi ble grunnlagt for å gjøre reell innvirkning på byens økonomi og for å bedre helse. Et århundre senere, vi er fortsatt gjør dette.

Samt å se utover, vi har dyptgripende styrke innen. Betydningen av elevene gjenspeiles i vår fremragende ytelse i National Student Satisfaction Survey.

The University of Sheffield Studenter’ Union er konsekvent rangert topp i landet i Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

Vi ser våre studenter ikke bare som forbrukere, men som kunnskapsprodusenter, kreativitet og effekt. For eksempel, Sheffield frivillighet og Sheffield Heving og Giving (FILLE), begge drives av studentene’ Union, hjelpe våre studenter gjøre en forskjell i lokalsamfunnet.

Sheffield Frivillig arbeid er en av de største programmene i sitt slag i Storbritannia. Det er en modell av beste praksis og holder newSheffield Volunteer Standard.

Våre prosjekter i lokalsamfunnet er laget og drevet av studenter. De gir viktige støttenettverk i samfunnet og tilby tjenester som ellers ikke ville eksistere.

Et eksempel er den engelske samfunnets For the Love of Books prosjekt. Deres poesi klasser i lokal omsorgsboliger har har hjulpet til å redusere sosial isolasjon og forbedre helse og velferd mange eldre mennesker.

Sheffield RAG eksisterer for å hjelpe elevene samle inn penger til veldedige formål. RAG prioritet er lokalsamfunnet. I fjor 82% av innsamlede midler ble donert til veldedige organisasjoner i lokal South Yorkshire og Nord Derbyshire område.

Den RAG Utvalget organiserer et program for pengeinnsamling hendelser og aktiviteter for studenter å ta del i gjennom hele studieåret. Deres søster komiteen Bummit arrangerer en årlig UK haike samt en internasjonal veldedighet hitchhike. RAG støtter også samfunn, idrettslag, arbeidsutvalg, grupper og enkeltpersoner til å samle inn penger til veldedige organisasjoner de velger gjennom prosjekter som Adopter-a-Charity ordning.

Vi vant også hertug av York Community Initiative Award - for første gang noen universitet. Dette var for prosjekter includingPhilosophy i City (drevet av studenter ved Institutt for filosofi); student veiledning av unge mennesker fra fattige områder; aktiviteter for barn som har opplevd familie tap; og et senter som tilbyr gratis juridisk støtte til fellesskapet.

Historie


The University of Sheffield developed from three local institutions: the Sheffield School of Medicine, Firth College and the Sheffield Technical School. The School of Medicine, grunnla 1828, was by far the oldest. Its early history was very insecure and it was saved from collapse by the opening of Firth College, which took over the teaching of all basic science subjects to medical students.

Firth College was one of a group of university colleges founded in the later 19th century. It developed out of the Cambridge University Extension Movement, a scheme designed to bring university teaching to the large towns and cities of England, most of which lacked any university provision. The success of these courses in Sheffield led Mark Firth, a local steel manufacturer, to establish the College in 1879 as a centre for teaching Arts and Science subjects.

The Sheffield Technical School

The Sheffield Technical School was the product of local concern about the need for better technical training of the men responsible for running the great industries of Sheffield, particularly steelmaking. A movement was started within Firth College to collect funds to create a technical department, som ble etablert i 1884 as the Sheffield Technical School. I 1886 the School moved to new premises on the site of the old Grammar School at St George’s Square.

I 1897, the three institutions were amalgamated by Royal Charter to form the University College of Sheffield. This step was part of the plan to link up with the Victoria University, a federation of the University Colleges at Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.

Av 1900, derimot, the Federal University was disintegrating and within a few years independent universities were formed from the three University Colleges.

På 31 Kan 1905 the University of Sheffield was granted its Royal Charter, and in July the new Firth Court Building on Western Bank was opened by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. St George’s Square remained the centre of Applied Science departments, with Arts, Medicine and Science being housed at Western Bank.

The University in 1905

At the time of the University’s foundation in 1905 det var 114 full-time students reading for degrees in Arts, Pure Science, Medicine and Applied Science. I 1919 when returning ex-servicemen were admitted in large numbers, the full-time student figure rose to a short-lived peak of about 1,000. By then the Faculty of Applied Science had split into Engineering and Metallurgy; the University’s first Hall of Residence (the original Stephenson Hall) had been established; and the Edgar Allen library had opened (1909).

At that time the University was as committed to non-degree teaching as to teaching full-time students. Courses covered not only many conventional academic subjects but also topics as diverse as cow-keeping, railway economics, mining and razor-grinding. During the First World War some of these were replaced by teaching of (and participation in) munitions making, medical appliances design and production, translation and politics.

Between the two wars full-time student numbers stabilised at about 750 and expansion into new areas of specialist teaching and research continued slowly. The Second World War brought with it new areas of specialist research and training – i, for eksempel, radar, dietary and vitamin studies, production of anaesthetics and chemicals (as substitutes for materials previously imported from Europe), magnetism, fuel production and economy, naval cartography, glass manufacture and English language teaching.

Since the Second World War

Since the Second World War, many older houses have been brought into academic use and major new buildings have been constructedthe Main Library in 1959, and the Arts Tower, Hicks Building, Alfred Denny Building, Sir Robert Hadfield Building, Chemical Engineering Building, University House, five Halls of Residence and the Union of Students in the 1960s.

New buildings for Geography and Psychology followed in the 1970s, along with the Crookesmoor Building (for Law and Management), the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and purpose-built student flats. The next decade saw the opening of the Octagon Centre, the Sir Henry Stephenson Building (for engineering), and major extensions at the Northern General Hospital.

På 1990-tallet, new premises for the School of Clinical Dentistry, the Management School, the Division of Education, St George’s Library (incorporating Blackwell’s University Bookshop) and St George’s Flats and Lecture Theatre were opened, together with extensions to Stephenson, Halifax, and Tapton Halls of Residence, and three new blocks of student flats.

The Regent Court building, which houses the Departments of Computer Science and Information Studies and the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research, were also completed. The Union of Students underwent a £5 million development programme, improving welfare, social and meetings facilities.

Following the University’s integration with the Sheffield and North Trent College of Nursing and Midwifery in 1995, a building programme provided new facilities for nursing and midwifery teaching and research. This includes the extension and conversion of the St George’s Hospital site on Winter Street, and the construction of a new building at the Northern General Hospital.

The 21st century

The University’s ambitious estates strategy has continued into the new millennium. Campus additions include the £80 million refurbishment programme for laboratories in the medical, biological and physical sciences:

  • Custom-built University Health Centre
  • The Sheffield Bioincubator
  • Multidisciplinary Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences

Other projects include:

  • The Diamond, an £81 million building on the Jessop East site, which has specialist engineering teaching facilities, as well as lecture theatres, seminarrom, open-plan learning spaces, library services and social spaces. It is predicted to bring £44.5 million into the local economy during the construction phase and first year of operation, with an ongoing annual contribution to Sheffield’s economy of £20.6 million.
  • A £20 million refurbishment of our award-winning StudentsUnion and landmark University House building. The two buildings have been revamped and integrated to create outstanding facilities and services for students, staff and visitors
  • An £8 million investment programme in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health
  • A £21 million Faculty of Engineering Graduate School, the Pam Liversidge Building, featuring specialist facilities for engineering postgraduate students
  • Refurbishment of our landmark Grade II* listed Arts Tower building
  • Three buildings for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities: The Jessop Building, The Soundhouse and Jessop West
  • £160 million building programme to redevelop residential accommodation on the Endcliffe and Ranmoor sites
  • The inauguration of the £20 million North Campus (housing the Kroto Research Institute and the Nanoscience and Technology Centre)
  • The construction of the £23 million library building, Information Commons

The mile-long ‘campusnow stretches almost unbroken from St George’s Square into Crookesmoor, with student residences concentrated in suburbs to the west of the University. For the first 50 år av sin eksistens, the University’s full-time student population did not rise above 2,000. Av 1980, derimot, it had reached 8,000 og i 2006 the number of full-time students had risen to 21,000. The total student population is now over 27,000 and includes students from all over the world.
