The ranking is based on criteria measuring teaching, research, industry income, international outlook and citations, which are combined to provide a comparison of universities worldwide.

The subject-specific tables for clinical, pre-clinical and health studies follow on from the announcement that Oxford has been ranked the top university in the world by the same publication for the seventh year running.

 

This remarkable achievement reflects the amazing staff and students working across the Division, and is testament to their dedication, as seen during the pandemic.

Professor Gavin Screaton, Head of the Medical Sciences Division
