Please note that some Universities have missing data. Where the table is ranked by a single measure, the institutions with no data for that measure appear at the bottom.

Since the Subject Tables were published on Monday 12 May, some errors have been brought to our attention which have resulted in a revised set of Subject Tables being posted on Tuesday 27 May. Most changes in rank are small.
