The University of Sussex is in the world’s top 100 universities for eight subjects, a new international ranking has revealed.
The QS University World Rankings by Subject, published today (Tuesday 22 March 2016), looked at more than 4,000 universities to find the global powerhouses in 42 individual subject areas.
Sussex is second only to Harvard – and top in the UK and Europe - for development studies, and is 42nd worldwide for the study of anthropology.

Six other subjects at Sussex are ranked in the global top 100:
