Highest-ever world ranking in Arts & Humanities

(4 October 2019)

We’ve achieved our highest-ever global ranking in Arts and Humanities in a prestigious international league table. 

The Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings by Subject 2020 place us 27th – up three places from last year. This is the fifth consecutive year we’ve ranked in the top 30 for Arts and Humanities in this league table.

The rankings look at hundreds of universities across the globe, based on teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.

We are celebrating this fantastic achievement on our web pages and social media accounts and would encourage you to do the same.
