World University Rankings - QS World University Rankings 2024

The results of the 20th edition of the world's best universities - QS World University Rankings - have been announced. The list, which includes 1,500 institutions from 104 countries, is the only ranking of its kind that emphasizes graduate employability and sustainability when evaluating universities. The ranking includes 22 universities from Poland. 

The authors of the QS World University Rankings seek to measure key aspects of university performance related to:
- conducting high-quality research, 
- educating graduates with high employability, 
- adherence to teaching quality and internationalization.

Moreover, against the backdrop of changing student priorities and evolving missions of world-class higher education institutions, the authors of this year's 20th anniversary ranking, the largest to date, have introduced three new indicators: 
1. commitment to sustainability
2. even greater emphasis on supporting graduate employability
3. increased international research cooperation to solve the world's biggest challenges. 


"Sustainability," or "sustainability," is new to the QS World University Rankings. It is recognized not only within an institution's practices, but also its impact on the world through teaching, research and partnerships.

Today's students expect universities to take positive steps toward sustainability, both from a social and environmental standpoint. 

More than 90 percent of universities around the world believe it is important for higher education institutions to be more sustainable - meaning that fostering social change and environmental activism is very much a priority through their research, pedagogy and community engagement.

Graduate employment rate

In the QS International Student Survey 2023, as many as 64% of students ranked "high quality teaching" as a priority. 53% of them value "personal interest in the subject." In addition, 39% of respondents selected "high graduate employment rate" as one of the five most important factors in their decision to choose a university. For this reason, the employment rate was included in this year's ranking.

The new employment rate recognizes the responsibility of universities to ensure that their graduates are employable, while supporting future leaders who can make an impact on society or the economy in their fields.

International Research Network

This indicator was added to the QS World University Rankings to check the number of international partners that universities have in their published papers.

Collaboration and knowledge sharing between institutions improves the quality of research projects and its ultimate outcomes - and collaborative international research plays a key role in solving some of the world's most pressing challenges.

New entrants 

There were 85 new entrants to the ranking this year - more than half of them are from Asia, with the largest representation from Bangladesh (11 new institutions), Indonesia (10), India and Malaysia (5 each), and Kazakhstan (4). Two of the new institutions made it into the top ten rankings: National University of Singapore and the University of California at Berkley. 

Other new locations included in this year's rankings were Iceland and Luxembourg (one institution each), as well as Nigeria (2) and Ethiopia (1). The best performers among the new entrants were Qatar's Hamad bin Khalifa University and the University of Luxembourg, securing a place in the top 400.

Ranking results

The QS WUR ranking is a compilation in which some of the universities are assigned specific places. In the ranking, detailed positions are given to universities ranked from 1 to 400. The results of universities with places above 400 are given in groups, of 10, 50 or 100. It is worth noting that the QS WUR ranking presents data for the year ahead, since in many countries around the world, recruitments end in June, so the results are prepared for next year's recruitment.
