Ranking of world universities QS

The drafters of the rating of the best universities in the world QS World University Rankings assess universities on six metrics: research, teaching, opinion of employers and career potential, the number of foreign students and teachers. In order to participate in the ranking the University has to offer undergraduate and graduate programs, at least two broad subject areas (e.g., arts and social Sciences, engineering and technology, the right and business).

The QS focuses on the reputation of the universities in the academic environment.

Leaders of the QS for many years consistently are the universities of the USA and the UK. Read more about the U.S. education system and how to enroll in American universities can be found here. About British higher education and applying to British universities here.
