ShanghaiRanking Consultancy, an independent organisation dedicated to studying and researching higher education, known for its Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), has once again announced the results of the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS). The list features 13 academic disciplines available at the Jagiellonian University – the largest number out of 25 Polish higher education institutions featured in the ranking.
ShanghaiRanking began to publish world university ranking by academic subjects in 2009. By introducing improved methodology, the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) was first published in 2017. The 2022 GRAS contains rankings of universities in 54 subjects across Natural Sciences, Engineering, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences, and Social Sciences. More than 1,800 out of 5,000 universities across 96 countries and regions are finally listed in the rankings. The GRAS rankings use a range of objective academic indicators and third-party data to measure the performance of world universities in respective subjects, including research output (Q1), research influence (CNCI), international collaboration (IC), research quality (Top), and international academic awards (Award).
The 2022 edition of GRAS features 25 Polish universities, classified in 28 disciplines. The Jagiellonian University made it to the Top 200 in Public Health, Mathematics and Veterinary Sciences. Other ranked disciplines include Clinical Medicine, Dentistry, Medical Technology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Physics, Psychology, Biological Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Ecology.
