The QS World University Rankings were published earlier this week. Maynooth has two subjects in the top 200 worldwide: English and Geography (both in the range 151-200). I have explained in an earlier blog how difficult it is for subjects at smaller and newer universities to receive recognition in this listings so this is a significant achievement.
Here are the Geography departments ranked in Ireland
Here are the components of the Geography score (Galway does not give components for Geography so I am unsure how their Geography ranking was achieved – perhaps they returned under Marine or Environmental Studies?)
