Walk it off! Bad news for Trinity College following THESE results


We all know Trinners are winners, but they might not be for much longer following the publishing of the QS World University Rankings 2016/ 2017.

Falling a staggering 20 places, Trinity College has slipped to 98th place in the World University Ranking meaning it's just two positions away from no longer being included in the world's top 100 universities.

And it's not just TCD who has found itself slipping down the scale this academic year as UCD dropped 22 places leaving it at number 176 while UCC has fallen 50 places and DCU has dropped seven.

It's not all bad news for students studying in this country, however.

Flying the flag for Irish universities in the rankings which rate third-level institutions on academic reputation, employer reputation, student to faculty ratio, citations per faculty, international faculty ratio and international studio ratio, NUI Galway has made its way into the top 250 – a leap from its 287th place in 2012.

Let's just focus on that one right now, shall we?
