QS Ranking of UK universities

Check where your favourite UK university ranks

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 your desired institution fares on the global map. QS world university rankings are a good start for the same. 

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

The next QS World University Ranking is expected to come out in June 2023.
