The Star Ratings System
Limitations of rankings
  • Specialist strength often overlooked
  • Dependent on reliable collection of data for ALL
  • Over simplified view of institutional strength
  • Bias towards fully comprehensive institutions
  • International studies tend to focus strongly on
  • Moving target

Ratings vs. Rankings
  • Ratings are not dependent on the performance of
    other institutions
  • Ratings can be more adaptive
  • Ratings can include components not easily
    included in rankings

Best of Both
  • Working together...
  • A rating can provide some context to ranking
  • A rating can visually signal additional
    complexity beneath the ranking results
  • A rating can encourage users/readers to accept
    that ranking results ought to be understood
    rather than simply accepted
  • A rating can provide additional important, yet
    easily consumable, information to be involved
    earlier in any decision making process that might
    involve rankings

Research Quality
Thresholds likely to be adjusted dependent on
whether or not the institution has a medical
Graduate Employability
Teaching Quality
From existing national survey or QS
equivalent Minimum 20 response rate required
Infrastructure Part 1
Either owned by the institution or regular
student access to facilities verified by
operator Verified by graduated alumni
Infrastructure Part 2
In the case of an institution that only offers
postgraduate programs the threshold will apply
purely to international students in their first
year of any postgraduate program
Collaborations must be verified as active in
writing by an authorised representative of the
partner institution Christianity, Islam,
Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism.
Multi-denominational facilities are acceptable.
Specialist Strength
  • Duration 10 - 12 weeks per project

Star only available where an institution

maximum of two broad faculty areas Arts
Humanities Engineering IT Life Sciences
Biomedicine Natural Sciences Social
Sciences Threshold may vary dependent on the
provision of available data for the given subject
discipline Subject discipline rankings to be
developed by QS on an ongoing basis. Disciplines
will be based on narrower areas than above but
will still focus on popular areas (i.e. Physics
as opposed to Nuclear Physics)
