King’s College London and the University of Manchester rank high in global list

Two UK universities have been named among the top ten academic institutions to study nursing in the world.  

The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016, which has included nursing for the first time, ranked King’s College London (KCL) sixth and the University of Manchester eighth.

The University of Pennsylvania in the US is the world’s best university to study nursing according to the list, which features the world’s top 100 places to study the subject.

The opinion of academics and employers informed the results, along with analysis of almost 248,000 research papers that were analysed for citations.

KCL received an overall score of 89.6% and almost 100% for academic reputation. The University of Manchester had an overall score of 87.5% and 97.8% for academic reputation.

KCL executive dean of faculty Ian Norman said: ‘This achievement recognises the major contribution of the faculty to the research base of professional nursing and midwifery, and also the high quality of education and career preparation provided for our students. It is a reflection of the hard work, expertise and dedication of all our academic and professional services staff.’
