The newly-released QS World University Rankings have identified the 150 best departments of linguistics across the world. The University of Edinburgh is in 7th place, just above the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Amongst UK universities, Edinburgh follows only Cambridge and Oxford, and is 18 places above the next British entry, University College London. Linguistics is the highest ranking department in the University of Edinburgh, across all the fields covered by the QS Rankings.
The rankings are based principally upon an international survey of specialists in the field, augmented by the views of companies which employ linguistics graduates, and by the number of citations of work by members of the department.
