QS Faculty Ranking

The QS Academic Reputation Survey is one element used in the QS World University Rankings (40% of the final indicator). In addition, the survey alone is used to produce the Faculty Ranking. Rankings in five broad faculty areas are produced: Arts & Humanities; Engineering & Technology; Life Sciences & Medicine; Natural Sciences; Social Sciences & Management. Irish universities ranked are as follows:

QS stress that the Subject Ranking is based on more detailed criteria and is thus an entirely different metric.
