QS World University Rankings

QS World University Rankings è una classifica mondiale di università pubblicata ogni anno da Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

È una delle più note classifiche universitarie al mondo con la Academic Ranking of World Universities e al Times Higher Education World University Rankings,[1][2][3][4]

Tra il 2004 e il 2009, la classifica veniva pubblicata in collaborazione con Times Higher Education, settimanale britannico che tratta di istruzione superiore. A partire dal 2010 la collaborazione è terminata, e Times Higher Education ha cominciato a pubblicare una propria versione della classifica, Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Il ranking delle università del 2020-2021 è disponibile sul sito dell’ente.[5]

    «It is a remarkably stable list, relying on long-term factors such as the number of Nobel Prize-winners a university has produced, and number of articles published in Nature and Science journals. But with this narrow focus comes drawbacks. China's priority was for its universities to “catch up” on hard scientific research. So if you’re looking for raw research power, it's the list for you. If you're a humanities student, or more interested in teaching quality? Not so much.».
