QS World University Rankings 2023: 5 subjects in the top 100 for UCD College of Social Sciences and Law
In the 2023 edition of the world’s most-consulted university rankings, UCD continues to be named among the best universities globally across 42 out of 54 subjects, and it remains Ireland’s strongest institution in the league table.
Five subjects within the College of Social Sciences and Law were ranked in the top 100 which includes Library & Information Management attaining its highest performing subject at 23rd in the world rankings.
- Library & Information Management
- Politics and
Performing Arts, Social Policy & Administration and Philosophy at UCD are now ranked number 1 in Ireland.
The QS Subject Rankings are based on five criteria: Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, Citations per Paper, H-Index, and International Research Network (IRN) Index, and are compiled from three main data sources: global academic reputation survey, employer reputation surveys, and Scopus data.
In 2022 the methodology changed for the broad subject area rankings with the introduction of the IRN Index.
The IRN is a measure of the ability of institutions in “establishing stable research collaborations and reflects the ability of institutions to diversify the geography of their international research network”.
