International Development at Bradford ranked in top 100 of courses worldwide


The International Development programme at the University of Bradford has been ranked as one of the top in the world according to the latest QS World University Rankings.

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."

The QS World University Rankings by Subject are compiled using indicators selected to assess institutions’ international reputation in each subject area, alongside research impact in the field. Reputation is assessed using QS’s major global surveys of academics and employers, while research impact is gauged using citations data from Elsevier’s Scopus® bibliometric database.

Published since 2011, the rankings highlight the world’s top-performing institutions in a broad spectrum of individual academic areas. The rankings aim to help prospective students identify leading universities in their chosen field of study.
