Posted on 31 March 2016

Congratulations again for SPSW achieving spectacular ratings in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016

The Department is absolutely delighted to achieve such a high ranking in these world university comparison tables especially so soon after the recent REF success.

The newly released QS World University Rankings included a separate subject league table for Social Policy & Administration for the first time this year.

Head of Department Professor Nick Ellison writes:

'It's so good to see SPSW at York ranked 4th in the UK and 25th in the world!  This is a great recognition of the skills and dedication of our excellent staff working in all the units and teams across the Department.
