UK universities perform well in QS World University Rankings by Subject

14 March 2017


UK universities had cause to celebrate as QS released its World University Rankings by Subject league tables this month.

Big winners included Sussex, whose development studies course was rated the best in the world, and Loughborough, which was ranked top for sport. As expected, Oxbridge universities Cambridge and Oxford both performed well, with Oxford rated top in the most subjects, including English, geography, anatomy and archaeology, while Cambridge had more subjects in the top ten than any other institution.

In total, a quarter of all top 10 rankings are taken by UK universities - with the US and UK having the biggest share of the highest places. The annual QS World University Rankings by Subject compare institutions across 46 subjects, showing the strengths of in-depth specialisms, rather than basing comparisons on an overall university ranking.
