The Service

QS Stars is a rating system providing your institution with an overall score, as well as ratings in eight categories, which you can use to promote your brand on an international scale.

Since the launch of this service in 2010, the QS Intelligence Unit has rated more than 275 institutions in 45 countries with QS Stars.

As well as the recognition from your peers, QS Stars has become a deciding factor for prospective students, ultimately influencing their choice of institution.

Institutional Strategy

QS Stars helps you understand your institutional strengths and weaknesses, regardless of your position in the rankings.

After a process of data collection and analysis, our team will provide you with a Development Roadmap which includes an in-depth report on your strengths and suggestions to perform better.

Marketing Strategy

As well as the Development Roadmap, you will receive an overall Stars rating which you can promote on all of your marketing materials.

This score can be promoted as a badge or a certificate and will help you convince prospective students, partners and potential staff members of the quality of your institution.

“The new QS Stars rating system further recognizes NTU’s strengths as a world-class university across a broader set of criteria than can be measured in any ranking system and provides valuable information for our many stakeholders – current students, prospective students, parents, teachers, employers, fellow academics as well as our local community.”

“From now on all of our promotional material, our website, and our publications, will include both the QS Stars rating alongside the Australian government’s ERA analysis.”

“QS Stars is a mechanism for us to project our specific strengths to the world. It has given us a better understanding of what are our weaknesses, as well as our strengths, within the university.”
