What are QS World University Rankings by Subject?

The QS World University Rankings by Subject ranks the world’s top universities in individual subject areas that cover 51 subjects. The rankings, in response to the high demand for subject-level comparisons, facilitate you by helping you identify the world’s leading schools in the field of your choice.

The rankings have established a set parameter to evaluate the programs and higher educational institutions. The QS World University Rankings by Subject incorporates four sources to compile each of the narrow subject rankings. The global surveys of academics and employers are the first two of the four QS’s and are employed to evaluate an institution’s international reputation in each subject.

The other two indicators evaluate research impact, based on research citations per paper and h-index in the relevant subject. These are sourced from the world’s most comprehensive research citations database, Elsevier’s Scopus database. 

Furthermore, an additional indicator is used in the broad-faculty area. International Research Network (IRN) highlights an institution’s sustained international research collaboration.

The five components used to rank universities in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022 are:

•         Academic reputation

•         Employer reputation

•         Research citations per paper

•         H-index

•         International Research Network (by broad-faculty area)
