QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018: Classics & Ancient History


Brand new for 2018, the classics & ancient history ranking will be a vital resource for any students interested in the subject. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the country’s history, the best university for classics & ancient history is Italian: Sapienza University of Rome leads the way this year, with the English heavyweights of Oxford and Cambridge close behind.

This inaugural ranking of the finest places to read Plato and examine the ancient Egyptians features 50 universities from 16 different countries, although an astonishing 35 of these institutions are from just four countries: Germany, Italy, the UK and the US.

The QS World University Rankings by Subject are based upon academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact (click here to read the full methodology).
