More Than 200 Universities Participating in QS Stars

Almost four years after the first QS Stars report was delivered to King’s College London, the QS Stars rating system has taken off since then, and there are now more than 200 universities from 43 countries currently participating. From Canada to New Zealand, the QS Stars has been undertaken in six continents, reflecting its global recognition. Among these 200 universities, almost 160 have completed the audit and have been awarded badges in various categories highlighting their strengths such as Employability, Facilities, and Internationalization among others.

In the news, Malaysia’s Prime Minister has recently congratulated Universiti Malaysia Perlis (Three Stars) for results achieved in the audit, the country’s Deputy Prime Minister also said “Congratulations to UniMAP for allowing external parties to evaluate (rate) its position. Other universities must learn from UniMAP on how to lead the operations in achieving excellence.”
