Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Times Higher - QS World University Rankings provide the first meaningful basis by which international candidates can compare universities around the world." The Times Higher

"I liked the concept of the book and there is no doubt it provides a tremendous amount of information for anyone with an interest in higher education or studying abroad. It is easy to browse through and locates details on countries and universities... There has always been strong interest in The Times Good University Guide and this publication has built on such interest to open up the gateway to worldwide study." News Check

“The 2006 Times Higher - QS world university rankings reveal that Oxford and Cambridge are now Harvard's closest competitors after the US institution's lead slipped from 13% last year to just 3% this year… The Ranking is based on a survey of more than 3,000 academics and 736 graduate employers, and takes into account a university's student-staff ratio, its ability to attract foreign students and internationally renowned academics.” The Guardian

“The World University Rankings… confirm Britain’s position as a centre of global educational importance.” The Times

"It is good for the UK to be benchmarked against the best universities in the world. It is government policy to ensure that the UK has world-class universities. So we need a way to tell whether it is worth investing more in the system. It is also in the public interest to see that our higher education system remains world-class." Richard Lambert, Head of Confederation of British Industry

“It is good for the UK to be benchmarked against the best universities in the world. …It is also in the public interest to see that our higher education system remains world-class.” Confederation of British Industry

Seoul National University has recently received outstanding international recognition. It came 63rd in this year’s Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) QS World University Rankings, a surge from 93rd in 2005. Its engineering college was listed among the world’s top 20 colleges by globally renowned academics.”

“The University of Edinburgh is hoping to raise £350m from supporters and benefactors by 2011. Almost £150m has already been secured for the appeal. It is currently ranked in the top 35 of the 2006 Times Higher – QS World University Rankings.” BBC News

What Top Universities say:

“We’re pleased to have our excellence recognized.” Harvard University

The Times Higher- QS represents perhaps the 'gold standard' of university rankings, so this kind of recognition is particularly valuable. Vanderbilt, ranked 53rd, clearly stands side-by-side with the very best universities in the world” Gordon Gee, Chancellor, Vanderbilt University

"It is very reassuring that the collegiate systems of Cambridge and Oxford continue to be valued and respected by peers, and that the excellence of teaching and of research at both institutions is reflected in the World University ranking." Ian Leslie, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research, Cambridge University

“We take pride in the special international reputation and position of McGill as an entirely fitting tribute to our remarkable faculty, staff and students. McGill University was the only Canadian university to crack the top 25 in this global guide to universities.” Heather Munroe-Blum, Vice-Chancellor McGill University
