About the University of Sheffield


The University’s purpose has long been to improve the world by seeking to better understand it. Our motto – Rerum Cognoscere Causas – comes from Virgil’s Georgics and means ‘to know the causes of things’. We now define the University’s mission in more contemporary language as ‘to discover and understand’.


We remain committed today to the goal of changing the world for the better through the power and application of ideas and knowledge. The University received its royal charter in 1905. Today it employs over 5,000 staff and delivers programmes to more than 20,000 students from 130 different countries.
