THE UNIVERSITY’S medicine program has made it to the 2021 Quacquarelli-Symonds (QS) world subject rankings for the third consecutive year.
UST placed in the 601–650 bracket in this year’s medicine subject ranking. In the last two years, UST’s medicine program was in the 451–500 class.
“UST graduates consistently and yearly dominate the top ten in courses with board exams (Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Engineering, Architecture, Accountancy, Education, etc.). This proves the University’s superior academic programs,” the QS website said.
The University of the Philippines (UP) was the best medicine school in the country as it was grouped in the 301–350 bracket. UP figured in 15 out of 51 specific subject areas, the most among Philippine universities.
Ateneo de Manila University was ranked 201–250 in English language and literature, 251–300 in modern languages, 301–320 in sociology and 451–500 in business and management studies.
De La Salle University placed in four subject areas: English language and literature (201–250), linguistics (210–250), business and management studies (301–350) and economics and econometrics (451–500).
The latest QS ranking by subject is the world’s largest subject ranking, covering 51 disciplines.
Four components were used to rank the universities by subject: academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations per paper, and h-index, which measures the productivity and impact of each published scientist or scholar at a university.
