The Bartlett retains 2nd spot in 2018 QS World Rankings by Subject

1 March 2018

The Bartlett has again been ranked as Europe’s top institution for architecture/built environment (and second globally) in the renowned QS World Rankings.

The Bartlett is the only UK institution for architecture and the built environment to feature in the global top five. The result is one of a number of successes for UCL in the 2018 QS World Rankings by Subject: the university now has 12 subject areas ranked in the global top 10 – two more than last year. 

With a score of 97.1 overall (up from 95.7 last year), The Bartlett narrowly missed out on first place to MIT (The Massachusetts Institute of Technology), which scored 98.5. We also notched up an impressive 91.9% in the employer reputation scores, as well as 98.4% for academic reputation. Welcoming the results, Professor Alan Penn, Dean of The Bartlett, said:

The Bartlett’s teaching and research have again been recognised as among the best in the world, and unrivalled in Europe. It’s more evidence of the quality of UCL staff and student output, which will be further enhanced by our cutting-edge new facilities at Here East – recently opened in partnership with UCL Engineering Sciences.

Aside from The Bartlett’s number two spot, other highlights for UCL include Education, where the university is ranked number one globally, and Archaeology, where UCL takes the number three spot.

Published annually, the QS World University Rankings cover 48 subjects by collecting opinions from thousands of academics and employers. They also analyse millions of research papers and citations over a five-year period to measure the impact of publications from institutions, as well as their productivity.
