Ghent University’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine ranks first in the world 

Ghent University’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine ranks first again in the prestigious “Shanghai Ranking of Academic Subjects’, more specifically in the category Veterinary Sciences.

Each year, this ranking lists the best universities in 52 scientific disciplines. The place on this list is determined by the number of publications and awards received, amongst other things. Unlike the general Shanghai Ranking, the ‘Global Ranking of Academic Subjects’ shows the position for certain disciplines.

This result is only possible because of the daily commitment of the entire faculty to quality education and research. The faculty wishes to thank all its staff for making these excellent results possible, even during the difficult past year.

Ghent University also scores high for other programmes, such as Food science and Technology, Agricultural Sciences, Education, Communication Biotechnology and Psychology.
