The Rankings by Subject are equally positive, with improvements for the University’s Arts and Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences - as well as a number of more specific subject areas.

We know within the University how much dedication is shown by our highly-talented members of staff, but it is always good to see this recognised by external rankings bodies such as QS."
