QS Stars University Ratings
Discover which of the world's top universities perform best in the areas you care about most with QS Stars.
QS Stars is a rating system that provides a detailed look at an institution, enabling you to identify which universities are the best in the specific topics that you care about, like program strength, facilities, graduate employability, social responsibility, inclusiveness, environmental impact, innovation and more.
QS Stars understands that universities are different to one another and therefore need to be assessed on a range of categories that recognize distinct strengths. It also recognizes that each student is looking for something different, and not all universities – even the highest ranked institutions – suit every student.
Using QS Stars when searching for your future program will help you understand which universities have performed well against a comprehensive list of indicators, allowing you to match your interests to the universities that are strong in the topics that matter to you.
In the methodology used for QS Stars, universities are evaluated in dozens of indicators across at least seven categories. After the assessment, universities are awarded with an overall Stars result which ranges from 0 to 5+ Stars, depending on the number of points achieved through the evaluation.
