The University of Washington is No. 7 in the world for education on the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects list for 2020. The ranking, released June 29, was conducted by researchers at the Center for World-Class Universities at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

“The need for excellence in scientific discovery, groundbreaking scholarship and training highly skilled experts has never been more evident or urgent,” said President Ana Mari Cauce. “The University of Washington is proud to again be recognized as a leader in the vital endeavor of advancing discovery and creating new knowledge to support a better world.”

The group ranked more than 4,000 universities around the world in 52 subjects across natural sciences, engineering, life sciences, medical sciences and social sciences.

In 2019, the UW was ranked No. 14 on the group’s annual Academic Ranking of World Universities list. This year’s university ranking has not yet been released.
