Students link university ranking with employability, survey reveals
According to a recent prospective student survey by QS, the producer of the World University Rankings, the majority of students see an institution’s position in global rankings as important but not necessarily reflective of quality. But 62% of the 519 respondents said that it’s important for an institution to be internationally known to improve the employment prospects of their graduates.Based on the feedback, QS concluded that a student-created ranking would place a 33% weighting on employer reputation and employment rate. Teaching quality and student experience would each be weighted around 20% followed by research (15%) and cost (8%).
