Trinity College Dublin has risen again in the QS university rankings. The university rose three places to reach 98th in the world and was named Ireland’s leading institution in the QS World University Rankings 2023, which were released today [June 8 2022].
The improvement was due to a rise in citations (a measure of academic impact) across all three of Trinity’s academic faculties (Health Sciences, STEM, and Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences).
Further government funding to tackle our staff-student ratio is key to ensuring we remain in the Top 100. While I welcome the government’s recent “Funding the Future” announcement, this must now be delivered upon. Investment in third-level education benefits our students and our society.”
Trinity’s Dean of Research Dr Wolfgang Schmitt said:
“A significant factor in Trinity’s ranking this year is an improvement in the ‘citations per faculty’ metric. This is a clear recognition of the world-leading research that happens in our schools and faculties on a daily basis. If we continue to commit to the principles articulated in our Research Charter, I am confident that we can improve further.”
