The annual QS World University Rankings by Subject ranks Universities around the world in several popular subject areas.
The ANU has come off looking rather spiffy in the 2013 findings.
ANU has nine top-ranked subjects in the country, according to the latest QS World University Rankings by subject for 2013.
ANU subjects leading the way in Australia include: history, modern languages, philosophy, electrical engineering, earth and marine sciences, geography, mathematics, political and international studies and sociology.
Five subjects also attained top-ten world rankings with politics and international studies coming in sixth position, history in seventh, geography in equal eighth, linguistics in ninth and philosophy 10th.
ANU also recorded a top 25 world-wide ranking for each of the five arts and humanities subjects ranked.
Compared to 2012 results ANU has overtaken University of Melbourne and University of New South Wales in electrical engineering to take out the top national spot – 28th in the world, up from 41.
