Hi there,

When comparing universities, I would recommend comparing the teaching standards at each: for example, there are standardized comparisons such as the Athena Swan awards. The University of Sheffield is a Russell Group universtiy which means that it is a research-led institution. Looking at league tables can also be useful - however, be sure to look at league tables over a few years to see if a department has been improving over the last few years or whether it has slipped in the league tables.

Sheffield has more international students (28%) to Brunel's (22%). For Home/EU students Brunel will be more diverse as it is so close to London which is really diverse. Sheffield is definitely more respected, Russell Group, 11th in CUG rankings for Biomedical Sciences to Brunel's 63rd and will students with higher average entry tariffs. Between Uxbridge and Sheffield. I wouldn't worry about crime rate, you just have to be sensible and avoid no-go areas and walking late into the night.

Hi!

Just to add onto what etienne26 has posted. Sheffield is a very ethnically diverse city and this is also reflected across the University, we have students from a range of ethnic backgrounds and from all around the world so I wouldn't worry about a lack of diversity as Sheffield definitely is diverse! The University has a range of societies also for all different countries or ethnicities which is really good to find a group of people you really relate to! As has been mentioned Sheffield is Russell group university so is very research intensive which is particularly good for courses like BioMed which are focused on a lot of research, as mentioned by Daniel I 100% agree with checking the league tables, a good site is UniStats for comparing between universities. At the end of the day for me Student satisfaction was the most important as you spend 3+ years at University you want to make sure you are somewhere that makes you happy Hope this helps and feel free to ask anymore questions.

Sheffield University is a great place to study, live and have a real uni life. A friend from LSE visited Sheffield University, went to one of the cafes in the Students Union and visited the Endcliffe Complex, and immediately said, if he knew he would have come to Sheffield for a great uni experience. Brunel should be nice too, but if you are comparing Brunel vs Sheffield, then Sheffield should warrant serious consideration. Have you visited Sheffield University? Although it is not a campus university, it is practically one as it is occupies many buildings in one part of the city, and feels like a campus within a city.

Just started Sheffield in my first year for biomedical science and I noticed you questioned how diverse it is....I’ve only been here over a week but my course is SO diverse! Honestly there’s people from all four corners of the globe from all sorts of cultures/races/religions so you really don’t have to worry about that! Sheffield is a Russell group too and has some world leading researchers if that’s what you’re interested in!
