Irish universities make big leaps in QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023

The 2023 edition of the QS World University Rankings by Subject was published this week, with eight subject departments at Irish universities placed within the top 50 globally.

Trinity College Dublin ranked the highest overall for a single subject at 22nd with English Language and Literature, but UCD is Ireland’s strongest institution in the league table, with 42 subjects ranked overall, including 13 in the world top 100. University College Cork was the national leader in ‘employer reputation’ with archaeology, suggesting strong employment prospects for its graduates.

QS senior vice president Ben Sowter said:  "Ireland’s continued improvement in QS’ subject rankings is a testament to its resilience, having overcome more severe budget restrictions over the past decade than most of its peers in Europe and the UK.

“With Ireland’s traditional strengths residing primarily in the arts and humanities, it should be encouraging to see its science and technology programmes achieving such success, with four of its 10 highest ranking subjects coming in these fields, life sciences and medicine showing particular strength.”
