The top 50 list also - which also includes Oxford, Cambridge and top universities in the U.S. and Asia – shows a significant increase in Sheffield's international reputation ranking in 2018. A key factor in this success has been the concerted effort at building overseas partnerships with the world's top universities.

The diversity of a university’s student and staff body, and the extent to which its academics collaborate with international colleagues are also signs of how global an institution is. These factors are included in the metrics that allow Times Higher Education to produce the most comprehensive global university rankings in the world.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Keith Burnett – who has personally led the university's focus on global reputation and strategic partnerships, in particular in China – said: "The University of Sheffield has always been internationally minded but recently we have focused even more on the partnerships we know are crucial not only to our research but which will also create opportunities for our students and our region.”

Phil Baty, Editor at Times Higher Education, said: “The best universities in the world live or die by their ability to attract the brightest talent from all across the world - students, academics, researchers and managers. I believe that a university simply cannot be world class without a global outlook, a global network and a global pool of talent.”
