Executive Dean of the Faculty, Professor Ian Norman said: ‘Broken down, the QS World University Rankings by Subject show that our strength in research and scholarship is continuing to grow. And I hope that the work we are doing in the Faculty now, will improve our scores further in the years to come.’

The QS Rankings by Subject highlight the world’s top universities across 48 different subjects. Institutions are assessed on academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations, and impact of publications to give an overall score.
