Nursing at the University of Southampton has been ranked among the best in the world according to the latest QS World Rankings by Subject.
The University was placed 10th in the world for the quality of the course and third in the UK.
This year’s results build on the University’s strong showing in the QS subject rankings last year, driven by Southampton’s continually improving academic reputation.
Nursing’s excellent performance for the second consecutive year, in what was a new category for QS in 2016, is powered by a very high reputational rating among academic peers around the world, as well as a score above 95 out of 100 for research citations.
Professor Mandy Fader, Dean of Health Sciences, said:
We are delighted that our commitment to excellence in nursing education and research is reflected in this latest QS World Ranking. We believe that first-class research is one of the key drivers to delivering care of the highest quality and ensuring that nursing continues to be a profession that attracts the brightest and the best.
The QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) rankings reflect internationally-recognised indicators of excellence to rate and rank the world’s leading universities.
In 2016, Southampton consolidated its position in the QS World University Rankings, placing 87th overall and 17th among UK universities ranked.
