IOE ranked 7th in world university rankings

15 May 2013

The Institute of Education is now ranked 7th worldwide in the annual World University Rankings by Subject published by the QS Intelligence Unit this week - an upward move of some ten places from the 17th place recorded in last year's listings.

Launched in 2011, the annual QS World University Rankings by Subject is a comprehensive guide to a range of popular subject areas. Now in its 3rd year, the rankings series reveals the top 200 universities in the world for 30 individual subjects.

Chris Husbands, Director IOE said "The news that the IOE has moved up to 7th place in the QS world rankings for education is excellent and recognises the world-leading work undertaken at the Institute. What's more, if you look only at the metrics indicators on research quality and impact, the IOE rises to third, alongside Harvard and Stanford – this is a reminder of just how important the IOE is to education research globally".
