In new subject-specific rankings compiled by Times Higher Education, Oxford University has been ranked as the top in the UK and 3rd in the world for Computer Science.

THE World University Rankings previously included Computer Science degrees in the engineering and technology subject ranking, but this year for the first time there is a dedicated league table for Computer Science. The University of Oxford, which became the first UK university to top the overall World University Rankings, makes the top five in seven of the individual subject rankings – more than any other institution.
