The sixth edition of QS World University Rankings by Subject found that English, History, and Law are all placed among the top 50. Geography, Linguistics, Medicine, and Drama are ranked among the world’s elite in the top 100.
According to Professor Morag Shiach, Vice-Principal (Humanities and Social Sciences):
“Last year, History and Law joined English in the top 50. Not only have all three subject areas held their position, but there has been a substantial improvement on last year’s results.”
Law climbed 10 places from 2015, and is ranked 35th globally. English and History each climbed nine places and are ranked 35th and 37th respectively. All three are placed in the top ten in the UK, along with Medicine, and Linguistics.
The QS World University Rankings by Subject is considered to be among the most trusted of league tables. Rankings are based on academic and employer reputations and research citations per faculty (the number of times the research is credited in the work of other academics).
Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is one of the UK’s leading universities, and one of the largest institutions in the University of London.
