Methodology

The QS World University Rankings by Faculty operate on the same principles and methodology as for the QS World University Rankings by Subject.

Like the narrower subject fields the indicators are weighted according based on their completeness and appropriateness to the area, with research metrics carrying less weight in Arts & Humanities.

2015 Edition

The QS World University Rankings by Faculty are published along the QS World University Rankings.
