The QS Star ratings system is an international standard identifying excellence and diversity among the world's universities. This is a rating system which allows students to get a wider picture of an institution’s qualities, looking at everything from the employability of graduates, to facilities and community engagement. The QS Stars audit evaluates an institution against over different indicators, and awards universities between one and five + stars over eight wider fields, as well as an overall rating. It provides recognition of specialties and includes components which are not included in the rankings.
The 4 categories that UPES has been awarded for its exemplary performance
Employability: Graduate employability encompasses more than academic strength, focusing on ‘work-readiness’ - the ability to work effectively in a multi-cultural team, to deliver presentations, to manage people and projects. Common indicators in this area are surveys of employers, graduate employment rates and level of career service support.
Facilities: The Facilities category talks about the physical infrastructure of a university, providing students with some insight into the environment they can expect for the university experience.
Teaching: A key role of a university is the nurture of tomorrow's finest minds, inspiring the next generation of potential research academics. Typical indicators here are domestic teaching quality assessments, collation of student feedback, national student surveys and student faculty ratios.
Inclusiveness: For a university aspiring to become truly world-class, its mission and its impact must extend further beyond the basics. The indicators considered here include: provision of scholarships and bursaries - particularly relevant in today’s global trend of higher tuition fees and student assistance policy, disabled access, gender equality and outreach effort to students from low-income families.
