  • 2,704 universities from the US are included this year, more than double the amount from the UK which is the next most-represented study destination

Every year since 2011, the QS World University Rankings by Subject have been compiled using data on research citations, combined with the results of major global surveys of academics and employers. More information about the methodology can be found here.

Can a university join only subject rankings?

QS subjects ranking looks great only for Graduate/postgraduate degree!! What's about undergraduate degree?

Hi Suha, please be assured that the subject rankings are valid for all study levels, not just graduate/postgraduate degrees.
