What our partners say

University of Sheffield

“The QS India Summit was a fantastic opportunity to engage with colleagues from the UK, QS, and a host of international universities. We made some invaluable connections with Indian institutions. Needless to say, meeting such a diverse and insightful group of institutions is constantly shaping Sheffield’s activity in India, and this is a strategic focus for the University in the coming years.”

Professor Koen Lamberts, President & Vice-Chancellor

O.P. Jindal Global University

“QS is able to engage the Global South to connect with the interests of the Global North.”

Professor Raj Kumar, Founding Vice-Chancellor

Mercer University

“To really make an impact in a market like India, you have to have people there every week of the year and QS offers that physical presence in market.”

Felix Jelen, Assistant Vice President, Global Engagement

Edith Cowan University 

“The highest growth in demand is from traditional strongholds which are typically high-volume markets including India and that is putting a lot of internal operational pressure on us. That’s why it has been so good to lean on QS, for the support, for the technology and for the insights. They’ve really helped us.”

Marko Remes, Dean, International Business Operations
