Five UK universities feature in world top 20 for arts and humanities

23 October 2015

 

UK universities had cause to celebrate following the publication of Times Higher Education (THE) World Rankings for arts and humanities. Five UK institutions featured in the top 20, up from four last year, and in total they made up a fifth of the top 100.

The UK universities inside the top 20 included Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, King’s College and Edinburgh. Chris Wickham, head of Oxford’s humanities division, cited the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), which launched in May 2013, as one reason for its success in this area. “TORCH is already a focus for cutting-edge research in interdisciplinary areas, and runs enthusiastically attended events, bringing together researchers from graduates to senior staff, in every one of our subject areas.” he said.

Arts and humanities is about the human experience across a broad range of areas and subjects. The arts focus on the visual arts, literary arts and performing arts, while humanities studies literature, classics, history, philosophy and religion.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
