For the fifth consecutive year, the Universitat Rovira and Virgili appears in the QS World University Rankings by Subject with four areas: Archaeology, Chemical Engineering, Medicine, and Chemistry.

The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023 ranks the performance of each university in five areas of knowledge: Arts and Humanities, Engineering and Technology, Life Sciences and Medicine, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences, and has evaluated 54 academic disciplines in this edition with comparisons of nearly 1,600 universities around the world.

In Medicine it is in 16th position and in the field of Chemistry it is 11th, at the same level as the University of Seville.

The Quacquarelli Symonds organizationpublished the 2023 edition of the ranking this Wednesday. Five indicators have been used to make the classification. The first two are global surveys of more than 130,000 academics and 75,000 employees worldwide, assessing the institutions’ international reputation. The other three indicators measure the impact of research through citations of publications, the H-index, which measures both the productivity and the impact (citations) of the work published by the research community, and collaboration in international research networks. The weight given to each indicator depends on the discipline analysed. For more information: QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023
