QS Ranking Parameters 2021

According to the QS World Ranking, the universities are ranked based on the following parameters:

  1. Academic Reputation (40%): This parameter is the highest weighting of any metric allotted to an institution. Based on QS’s Academic Survey, it collects the expert opinions of over 100,000 individuals in the higher education space, related to quality teaching and research at the world’s universities. This survey has grown to become the world’s largest survey of academic opinion. In terms of size and scope is an unparalleled and very informative means of measuring sentiment in the academic community.
  2. Employer Reputation (10%): The parameter follows the assessment of how successful institutions are at providing preparation for the employment market. It is essential for a ranking with the primary audience being the global student community. The Employer Reputation metric is based on around 50,000 responses to the QS Employer Survey and asking employers to identify the institutions from which they source the most competent, innovative and effective graduates. 
  3. Faculty/Student Ratio (20%): The teaching quality is cited in the highest importance by students when comparing institutions using a ranking. This parameter assesses the extent to which global institutions are able to provide students with meaningful access to lecturers and tutors. This also recognizes that a very high number of faculty members per student will ultimately reduce the teaching burden on each individual academic.
  4. Citation per faculty (20%): This parameter measures the institutional research quality which is calculated by taking the total number of citations received by the number of faculty members at that institution, in all papers produced by an institution across a period of 5 years. 
  5. International Faculty Ratio/International Student Ratio (5%): This parameter measures the international brand reputation of an institution. In doing so, the percentage provides students with international sympathies and global awareness which are some of the soft skills increasingly valuable to employers in present times. Both of these metrics are worth 5% each of the overall total.
