Bradford courses among top in the world


Two University of Bradford courses have again been ranked as some of the top in the world according to the latest QS World University Rankings.

The annual QS World University Rankings by Subject is a comprehensive guide to a range of popular subject areas. The rankings series reveals the top 200 universities in the world for 36 individual subjects.

The expert opinion of 85,062 academics and 41,910 employers informed the results, alongside the analysis of 17.3 million research papers and over 100 million citations. Over 3,500 universities were evaluated.

The two courses that have made it into the top 200 from the University are Pharmacy and Pharmacology, and Development Studies. This is the third time that Pharmacy at Bradford has featured in the top 200.

Bradford’s Centre for International Development welcomes students from up to 30 different countries each year, and has a knowledge transfer portfolio that has resulted in work with organisations such as the Africa Development Bank and China Development Bank.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian Cantor, said: “The University of Bradford is very proud of the high-quality of our courses. These ranking results place Bradford alongside the very best universities in the world, and I’m delighted and proud that our courses have been recognised in this way."
