2018 QS World University Rankings: Top 500

2018 QS World Rankings Top 500

The ranking, which is appearing in June for the first time, is larger than ever, with almost 1,000 universities placed and many more considered for inclusion. It remains much the most stable of the main international rankings, however, with only one new entrant to the top 20 – the Australian National University – and no university in that group moving by more than three places.

Nunzio Quacquarelli, the founder and Chief Executive of QS, said: “It is a matter of great pride that our ranking is so stable and yet so diverse. We hope that this gives students all around the world confidence in the results, at a time when more young people than ever want to study abroad and need good information to help select universities. The new publication date should also make the rankings more timely in that process.”
