The latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings subject tables will be launched from 2 October.

The subject-specific tables follow the publication of the overall THE World University Rankings 2020, which was revealed on 11 September and saw the UK’s University of Oxford claim the number one spot for the fourth year in a row.

Overall, 11 subject rankings will be published on four dates. Each table has been expanded since last year, with two of the lists including more than 1,000 universities for the first time.

The full schedule

  • 2 October (14:01 BST) – the top 536 universities in arts and humanities
  • 16 October (14:01 BST) – the top 1,008 universities in engineering and technology; the top 749 universities in computer science
  • 6 November (14:01 GMT) – the top 720 universities in social sciences; the top 632 universities in business and economics; the top 477 universities in education; the top 190 universities in law
  • 19 November (9:00 GMT) – the top 821 universities in life sciences; the top 1,054 universities in physical sciences; the top 494 universities in psychology; the top 775 universities in clinical, preclinical and health

The subject rankings are based on the same range of 13 performance indicators used in the overall World University Rankings 2020, but the methodology is recalibrated for each subject to suit the individual fields.
