A host of Lancaster University subjects have been placed in the global top 100, according to the latest QS World Rankings.

Within the Faculty of Science and Technology, Lancaster has ranked in the top 100 for Environmental Sciences (joint 93rd) and Statistics and Operational Research (51-100). Meanwhile, Computer Science and Information Systems, Psychology and Geography at Lancaster all came in the world top 150.

The QS World University Rankings by Subject includes more than 1,500 institutions across 55 different subjects, grouped into 5 faculty (broad subject) areas around the world.

The rankings base their findings on a range of quality indicators from academic reputation (based on votes from over 151,000 academics around the world) to employer reputation, research paper citations and other measures of research quality such as impact and research collaboration stability.

Lancaster University Vice-Chancellor Professor Andy Schofield said: “Whether we are exploring great works of Literature or the Amazon, analysing business practices or social care, Lancaster University is home to research that seeks to engage with and change the world for the better. To have many of our areas of excellence recognised in this global ranking is something for us all to be rightly proud of.”
