University of Sheffield placed in UK top ten for research grant funding
The University of Sheffield has been ranked among the top ten highest-earning UK institutions for research grant funding by the Times Higher Education.
Analysis of research council data found the University of Sheffield increased its research grant funding by £9.6 million in 2016-17 - up to £40.6 million - placing it ahead of many larger Russell Group research-intensive institutions.
The University also saw its grant application success rate increase by 2 per cent, from 25 per cent in 2015-16 to 27 per cent in 2016-17. Four of the top ten universities for research grant funding, including the top-ranked University of Oxford, experienced a decline in their grant application success.
