UCC in its strategic plan has aimed to be placed higher in the University QS rankings. UCC continues to progress up the rankings in the prestigious QS World University Ranking with 5 subjects ranked in the top 100. The QS World University Rankings by Subject are based upon academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact. Such metrics are important factors in terms of international students’ programme choices and in terms of international collaborative efforts.

The prestigious ranking enables the school to increase its research funding endeavours, attract world class research talent and ensure that talent from within is visible nationally and internally. The ranking is reflective of a school which contains a high functioning research, teaching and learning ecosystem.
