The University of Leuven tops all Belgian universities in the latest ranking by subject area from educational institutions around the world.

The ranking is made by the UK-based Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) who also rank the world universities according to general criteria.

The latest ranking deals with individual subject areas and ranks sixth at KU Leuven worldwide for the subject area of ​​theology, divinity and religious studies.

There has been a university in Leuven since 1425, but the Catholic university was founded in Mechelen in 1834 and only moved to Leuven a year later.

The placement of Leuven in sixth place in the world in 2021 is an increase of ten places compared to the previous year and the highest ranking that a Belgian institution has achieved this year.

It was also successful in other specialist areas: 19th place in the top 20 in dentistry; Rise by four places in mechanical engineering to 27; Inclusion in the top 50 for four scientific subjects – electrical engineering (38), civil engineering (39), chemical engineering (43) and chemistry (49); and achieving a first ranking for environmental sciences (61).

« Only eight universities in Europe can boast a higher number of top 50 programs than KU Leuven, » reports QS.

« Six of these eight are in Great Britain, which means that only the Swiss ETH Zurich outperforms the KU Leuven on the European continent. »

• Ghent University ranks 11th for agriculture and forestry (up one place) and 12th place for veterinary sciences (down one place). • The University of Louvain-la-Neuve (UCL) is in the top 50 worldwide for theology (22) and pharmacy and pharmacology (49) • The Royal Conservatory in Brussels has been reclassified in the 51-100 band for the performing arts. • The Free University of Brussels (ULB) is listed in 27 of the QS subject tables. • The University of Antwerp and the Free University of Brussels (VUB) keep the top 100 places for communication and media studies (volume 51-100).

« From revising international supply chains to working with European partners to investigate the role of simulation in improving health treatments, KU Leuven remains at the forefront of essential global research, » said Jack Moran, spokesman for QS .

« The latest edition of our ranking, in which KU Leuven consolidates and improves its positions in a number of core disciplines, reflects this commitment to collaboration, innovation and international thinking. »
