Wageningen University campus in the Netherlands

Wageningen University in the Netherlands has ranked No. 1 the last three years in Quacquarelli Symonds’ worldwide list of Top Universities for Agriculture & Forestry. What about for 2019?

Good grades aren’t everything, but they do count for a lot, especially when stacking up the planet’s top colleges. Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) knows a thing or two about grading the collegiate elite and has recently released its 2019 QS World University Ranking by Subject report. Among the 48 different fields of focus in the report are standouts in agricultural education and research.


According to QS, a London-based education marketing and networking company, each of the subject rankings is compiled using four components. The first two (academic reputation and employer reputation) are obtained via global surveys of academics and employers. The second two analyze research impact based on research citations per paper and h-index in the relevant subject. These are sourced from Elsevier’s Scopus database.
