2011 QS World University Rankings®: out 5th September

The much anticipated results of the 8th edition of the QS World University Rankings® will be published on www.topuniversities.com at  00.01 (GMT +1) , September 5th.

In 2010, the QS World University Rankings® grabbed the world’s attention as Cambridge took the number one spot from Harvard, the first time in the ranking’s history. The rankings are even more hotly anticipated in 2011 as this year sees drastic higher education spending cuts by governments in some parts of the world, whereas in others, heavy investment schemes are currently being implemented.

The QS World University Rankings® take into account six indicators:

Academic reputation (40%)

Employer reputation (10%)

Student/faculty ratio (20%)

Citations per faculty (20%)

International faculty (5%)

International students (5%)

Full embargoed results will be available on 1st September, 2011. For further information or to set up an interview with one of our rankings experts, contact:
