Top Universities for Life Sciences and Medicine in World 2015 - With intent to elucidate the mechanism of living organisms, a number of students seek admissions to Life Sciences and Medicine courses every year in universities of good repute. A degree in life science or medicine from a top-rated university not only adds to the students’ credibility as professionals but also gives a big push to their careers. But then, they often get spoilt for choice in the wake of hundreds of universities offering courses of Life Science and Medicines available across the globe.

 

Spotting the top universities for Life Science or Medicine courses will now be easier for students as Careers360 has compiled a list of such universities, based on the latest world university rankings by faculty conducted by the three reputed agencies -- Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and Times Higher Education(THE)

On analyzing these rankings, we find that the Top Universities for Life Sciences and Medicine from the US and the UK, have kept the previous year’s record intact and once again reign over the league tables by occupying most of the top 100 positions in the top universities for Life Science or Medicine in World 2015 ranking, with majority of the positions being occupied by the US. All the top five slots of the ARWU ranking for Life Sciences and Medicine 2015  are taken by the US universities with Harvard at the top spot followed by University of California at San Francisco, University of Washington, Johns Hopkins University and Stanford University in the same sequence. However, in the league table of QS World University Ranking 2015 for the same faculty, the top five includes three US universities with Harvard at the first position, and two UK universities – Cambridge and Oxford at the second and third positions, respectively.

 

The detailed ranking status of the Top Universities for Life Sciences and Medicine in World 2015 can be found in the table given below, which is limited to the top 100 of the ARWU, QS World University Rankings and THE.
