QS ranking: One of the most frequently mentioned and utilised rankings is the QS World University Rankings. The majority of the QS rating is based on its academic survey, which asks thousands of academics from around the world on the reputation of universities.
THE ranking: The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, or THE Rankings, compile a range of information. Teaching excellence, research excellence, and research impact are all given equal weight in terms of citations (the quantity of times a university’s research is cited elsewhere).
ARWU ranking: Research output and quality are prioritised in Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Academic Ranking of World Universities (often abbreviated as ARWU), which is determined by the number of peer-reviewed, published, and cited scientific articles as well as the number of employees or graduates who have won the Nobel Prize or Fields Medal.
