The University of Sussex ranked first in world for development studies
The University of Sussex is now ranked first in world for development studies by QS University Rankings 2018.
Sussex has been ranked first two years in a row and it is the fourth consecutive year of ranking in the top two universities globally for development studies.
The consistently high rankings reflect the well established partnership between the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and Sussex and demonstrates the quality, impact and range of international development research and development courses offered across the University, which includes IDS’ research and teaching programmes.
Melissa Leach, IDS Director, said “It’s wonderful news that Sussex has been ranked first in the world for development studies for a second year running. The range of postgraduate teaching programmes that IDS and Sussex offer, alongside our world-class research, are going from strength to strength.”
