UCL ranked in top five universities for arts and humanities

UCL has been ranked fifth in the world for arts and humanities in the latest league table published by The Times Higher Education.

UCL ties with Cambridge for the fifth spot with Oxford in fourth place in the table of 400 institutions from around the world.

The universities are ranked on 13 performance indicators across five areas including teaching, research, citations, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

Professor Stella Bruzzi, Dean of UCL’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities, said: “I am delighted to see the continued recognition of UCL as a centre of excellence in the Arts and Humanities, a truly international faculty within London's global university.

“This is a tribute to our world leading staff and their research, and a testament to the researchers of the future - our engaged and high calibre students.”

UCL Arts & Humanities generates world-leading scholarship across the departments of English, Philosophy, Greek and Latin, Hebrew & Jewish Studies, Information Studies, European Social & Political Studies, the Slade School of Fine Art, the School of European Languages, Culture and Society, and the Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (BASc). The Times Higher Education's definition also includes Architecture, History and Archeology.

The faculty’s centres and research groups include specialisms in archives & records management, African studies, comparative literature, digital humanities, early modern studies, translation, linguistics and publishing.
