URAP – Field-based

The same data and methodology as for the URAP World Ranking has (since 2011) also been applied at the level of fields.

From 2013-2014, 23 fields were designated, and institutions ranked within them – but the coverage is uneven, with up to 1,250 institutions ranked in some science disciplines but as few as 50 in some social science or arts disciplines. Irish institutions ranked are as follows:
