“The data in the QS Latin America rankings will be a vital tool to support UK’s engagement in the region.”
The methodology differs somewhat from that used for either the QS World University Rankings® or the QS Asian University Rankings, based on feedback collected from the region, the expert assessment of important factors in the region and the availability of data. Seven indicators are drawn together to form this regional ranking of universities:
|FACULTY STUDENT Ratio|
|Proportion of STAFF WITH PHD|
In 2014 the top 150 have been published in rank order, the next 50 in ranges of ten followed by to a range of fifty. The QS University Rankings: Latin America can be found online at:
One key input for the development of this methodology has been the responses gathered from a survey of academics and institutional representatives in 2011. However, the final methodology slightly diverged from the initially intended approach. Part of this has come from a constructive relationship with Cybermetrics Labs enabling us to access data from the Ranking Web of World Universities, but the other influence has been the availability of data. The international indicators, in particular, have been hard work to gather data for at the levels we had hoped and would have needed to justify their inclusion. This is a work in progress and something planned for reintroduction in the future.
