QS Stars

The QS Stars system evaluates universities against a range of important performance indicators based on a ratings method. It awards Stars to an institution, based on a range of criteria and can include universities not traditionally well-placed in rankings. It is an opportunity for these universities to highlight their strengths via awarded recognition.

  • QS Stars is a rating system providing your institution with an overall score, as well as ratings in eight categories, which you can use to promote your brand on an international scale.

  • Since the launch of this service in 2010, the QS Intelligence Unit has rated more than 275 institutions in 45 countries with QS Stars.

  • As well as the recognition from your peers, QS Stars has become a deciding factor for prospective students, ultimately influencing their choice of institution.
