When deciding which university to study at, it is crucial that you also look at the world university rankings. This helps you compare and understand where a university ranks and how does your desired institution fare on the global map. QS world university rankings are a good start for the same.

It considers 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.
