New figures demonstrate that the University of Nottingham (UoN) is one of the best institutions in the world. More than 3,000 institutions make up the survey, which evaluates universities according to the opinions of academics and employers all over the world. It is the only ranking that operates on an international scale.
The ‘QS World University Rankings by Subject’ show that 29 out of 30 subjects are now rated among the world’s top 200 elite universities.
Sixteen subjects offered at UoN have been ranked in the top 100 world institutions, with eight of those making the top 50.
According to the table, UoN’s highest ranked departments are Pharmacy, which placed 9th; Education, which placed 28th; and the Department of Law and the Department of Agriculture and Forestry, which both gained 34th.
The University was also ranked particularly highly for the Department of Geography (39th), English Language and Literature (44th), Linguistics (44th), as well as Accounting and Finance (45th).
UoN’s Registrar, Dr Paul Greatrix, said that the new figures are “testament to the exceptional standards at Nottingham, both in teaching and research”.
He added that the University “is proud to see that our Pharmacy course has been placed in the top 10 and features among the best institutions in the world”.
As Greatrix notes, the success follows the recent news that Nottingham graduates are the most employable in the country, he told Impact that it shows the University offers “a fully rounded experience to our students of both work experience and high quality teaching”.
