Faculty of Archaeology ranks 7th in QS World University Ranking

It is the sixth year in a row that the Faculty of Archaeology is placed in the top ten of archaeological institutes worldwide. The QS World University Rankings by Subject looks at criteria like academic reputation and citation ratios.

Rankings in times of corona

Reaching a high score in prestigious rankings like the QS World University Ranking can only be a group effort. Dean Jan Kolen is pleased with this news: 'The high position in the ranking is a huge boost for all our staff members who worked so hard during the Covid period to continue their teaching and research at the highest international level. But it is also a compliment to our young PhD students and postdocs, not to mention the staff of the Faculty Office, who always facilitate and streamline teaching and research in the best possible way.'

Output and reputation

The QS Ranking by Subject is based on academic output and reputation. For years now, the Faculty has been among the Top 10 in the World Ranking, along with the archaeological and anthropological institutions of Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Berkeley, Stanford, UCL and Durham, among others. In the past decade, our Faculty has consistently been ranked as the highest-qualified institute outside the US and UK.

In short: an absolute top performance!
