University of Sheffield has a much higher reputation, so if you’ve got the grades I recommend applying for Sheffield!

yeah but again it depends on the course. Does it have a better rep for law?

2021 University league table- York is at at 17. Sheffield is at 26. Objectively, York is better.

This is for Law btw when you pick the subject area.

Depends on where this person wants to go then. If they want to stay in England and practice in a MC firm or even as a barrister York is better.

Hi I was checking the ranks and if you compare the characteristics in that table, york and sheffield are quite similar, which brings me back to square 1:confused:

And the Complete University Guide has them 15th and 16th. They all measure different things.

Not necessarily for Law.

Tbh the biggest difference between Sheffield and York will be the environment.

Honestly, there is no need to fret so much about universities for Law as long as it is a Russell group. How you become successful is what you do with your time at the university and your degree. I was recently talking to a barrister and he had told me that hundreds of applicants with top A level grades, top universities and 1st/2nd class degrees are deciphered through other things. Not only just what qualifications they have, he said that they'd pick an applicant over another applicant any day who went to Oxford if they showed better judgement. I know one guy who went to Birmingham which isn't as good as the top Law unis such as KCL, Durham, Warwick with AAB at A-level and now works at a Magic Firm only at the age of 22. Just try to get into any Russell group, network and you'll be fine.

Yes Warwick is much better, the guardian ranking might not be the best league table.

I’d take the average place for THE and Guardian for both schools and see which one scores better if you wish to go by prestige.

I’ve found that THE is better for a holistic overview, as they measure research output for the subject, teaching quality, student satisfaction, employment etc

Makes no difference which one you pick in terms of which one if ‘better’ for law.

York has an unusual teaching style which you should look up before applying.

Sheffield is a bigger city than York if that’s something that interests you.
