QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022: Release summary page

By Dmytro F

Updated March 22, 2023 Updated March 22, 2023

Occasionally errors are reported after the analysis is complete and after institutions have received their rank and scores. In such cases, QS first rectifies the issue and where necessary updates the institution with a corrected set of results.

If a rank change occurs we place the corrected institution in its correct position but leave all other institutions unaffected.

This can result in two institutions in the same rank position with slightly different scores. In the case of an institution being removed from the rankings, again no other institutions will be affected but a gap may appear in the ranks.

Following the compilation of our first release candidate for this ranking, several corrections have been made (see below):
