QS World University Rankings

Check the ranking of your university on the world map

It can be quite challenging to decide which university or institution you want to study in. Given there are many factors you need to consider before deciding where you want to pursue your higher education, it’s a wise step to refer to the QS Rankings of your desired institution. 

What is QS Ranking?

Simply put, QS ranking is an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarellu Symonds, a British organisation specialising in the education industry. It was first published in 2004 in collaboration with Times Higher Education and was known as the Times Higher Education – QS World University Rankings until 2009 when both decided to publish their own versions.

QS Ranking Methodology 

The QS World University Rankings consider the university’s reputation among other universities (40%), employers (10%), student-teacher ratio (20%), citations-academic staff ratio (20%) and international outlook including students and staff (10%) for its compilation of top universities in the world. 

The QS system ranks these universities as per their global standing, and subject-wise (which includes 48 different subjects and five faculty areas) along with five regional tables. 

The 19th edition of QS ranking includes 1,400+ world’s best institutions across the world and most of the institutions that took the top spots were from Europe, Asia, and North America. The next QS World University Ranking is expected to come out in June 2023.
