Ranking Spanking

Victoria’s law school has dropped dramatically in international rankings, falling behind the University of Auckland and University of Otago and only just staying in the world’s top 50 universities for Law.

The QS World Universities Rankings by Subject 2014, released last Wednesday, highlight the top 200 universities around the world for 30 popular subjects.

In 2013, Victoria ranked first of all New Zealand universities for Law, coming in 19th in world rankings. The University of Auckland was ranked 24th, and the University of Otago 32nd.

2014 shows a decline for all three law schools in international rankings. Victoria’s Law ranking slipped to 49th, behind Auckland at 28th equal and University of Otago at 37th.

Victoria was also downgraded in Modern Languages, Computer Science, Psychology and Political Science.

However, Victoria ranked 31st in the world for English Language and Literature, up from 44th in 2013. Improvements were also shown in History, Chemistry and Sociology.

QS subject rankings are determined by academic reputation, citations per faculty, and the h-index, which measures the productivity and impact of the published work of academics.
