Sussex ranked first in the world for Development Studies 2018-19

The University of Sussex is number one in the world for development studies for the third consecutive year in the QS World University Rankings by Subject

QS Number 1

The rankings once again put Sussex top, above Harvard and Oxford. Sussex has now been number one for development studies for four out of the past five years. 

The ranking reflects the quality, impact and range of international development research and courses offered across the Sussex campus – in the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), and the University’s School of Global Studies, Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) and Centre for International Education (CIE).

Head of the School of Global Studies, Elizabeth Harrison, said: “It’s fantastic that the excellent work in development studies carried out at Sussex and IDS has once again been recognised. Our concern for global inequalities and social justice is reflected in our wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses and in our world-class and engaged research.”
