UK universities occupy global top five in QS Development Studies ranking

03 August 2022

The top five universities in the world for Development Studies are all located in the UK following the publication of the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022.

The University of Sussex was named the best university in the world for Development Studies for the sixth year in a row, with the rest of the global top five being comprised of SOAS, the University of Oxford, London School of Economics and University of Cambridge.

Prof Elizabeth Harrison, Head of the School of Global Studies, said: “For Development Studies at Sussex to be recognised as number one in the world for six consecutive years is a fantastic achievement. It reflects our great teaching and research relationships, both across campus and between Sussex and its partners globally.

"In the School of Global Studies this year we have continued to adapt and respond to, not only the continuing pandemic, but also the wider challenges confronting all who seek a fairer, safer, more sustainable and inclusive world.”

 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.
