Architecture subject league tables

Can someone at CUG please explain to me why Edinburgh Napier ranks 17th in 2014 (20th in 2013) in the Architecture league table when they do not offer a degree in Architecture?

Edinburgh Napier do offer a course in Architecture Technology but this is not the same as, and can't be compared directly with, a degree in Architecture, which is a 5 year course across the UK, progresses to a legally registered title and the courses for which are validated by the Royal Incorporation of British Architects.
Answered by Alison Patterson
This is a common misunderstanding when reading the Subject Tables. They are subject tables not tables of accredited degree courses. Edinburgh Napier is a bit anomalous as they get into the table on the basis of NSS (level 2 data) and RAE but the institution includes Architecture as a subject where it is appropriate to list them.
