Success in QS ratings helps to bring about positive focus

QS Stars is a breakaway ratings system from the highly reputable Times Ranking System, that rates universities from around the world in categories such as internationalisation, online delivery, access, teaching, employability and research.

This was our first time participating in the ratings system, and we achieved an impressive 3 stars overall, while scoring specifically a 4 star rating for both teaching and facilities. But the major cause for celebration in all of this was our 5 star rating for internationalisation, access and online delivery.

We pride ourselves on being a university for everyone and to receive ratings like these for student accessibility, online delivery and internationalisation (indicated by our proportion of international staff and students, as well as the strength and number of our international partnerships) is truly a great achievement.

Ratings like these not only give us all a much needed pat on the back but help us enormously to build our global reputation and attract students to our University. Participating in these ratings also provides us with a benchmark for future growth and improvement.
