QS World University Rankings
Checkout the global ranking of your university
It can be quite challenging to decide which university or institution you want to study at. Given there is a range of factors you need to look at before finalising your future destination, it’s a wise step to refer to the QS Rankings of the university or institution you are considering to study abroad.
What is the QS World ranking?
Simply put, the 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.
