The QS World University Rankings by Subject aim to help prospective students identify the world’s leading schools in their chosen field in response to the high demand for subject-level comparisons.

Four sources compile each of the narrow subject rankings. QS’s global surveys of academics and employers, the first two, assess institutions’ international reputation in each subject. The second two indicators assess research impact based on research citations per paper and h-index in the relevant subject ( Sourced from Elsevier’s Scopus database, the world’s most comprehensive research citations database). 

At the broad-faculty area, an additional indicator, International Research Network (IRN), sheds light on institutes’ sustained international research collaboration. This was introduced in the 2022 edition of this ranking after broad support from our Global Rankings Advisory Board.
