Study Group university partners ranked amongst the world’s best in 2022 QS subject rankings

Every year, the internationally-respected QS World University Rankings by Subject provide an independent analysis on the performance of 15,200 individual university programmes around the world. One of a number of global rankings focused on different metrics, QS aims to help prospective students identify the leading universities in a particular subject. In 2022, fifteen of Study Group’s partner universities have been included in this prestigious ranking.

Our long-standing partner Durham University achieved a record twelve subjects in the top 50, spanning Geography, Theology, Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History.

For the sixth year running, University of Sussex ranked first in the world for Development Studies, while the University of Sheffield also ranked first for Library and Information Management. University College Dublin was listed first in Ireland for 20 out of 51 subjects — up from 16 last year.

Our partners at the University of Sydney come top in Australia, and fourth in the world, for graduate employability - with a total of nine subjects in the top 20 globally.

Lancaster University has 30 subjects featured in the rankings. Also featured are Study Group partners Royal Holloway, University of London, Cardiff University, University of Leeds, University of Huddersfield, our Holland International Study Centre partners Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Tilburg University, and Baylor University and Florida Atlantic University in the United States.
