Dan kriteria yang digunapakai:

The Approach

In this context, the THE – QS World University Rankings were born, and, from the beginning identified 4 key pillars upon which a World Class University can be built, and as a basis for evaluation used them as criteria under which indicators have been chosen to evaluate universities globally.

These criteria or pillars are:
Research Quality

How well-respected is the output that an institution’s faculty are publishing? Is the university in question a real centre of excellence in any particular discipline, world-renowned for contributing to the progress of human knowledge, thought or understanding? Indicators often considered here are domestic assessments of research quality, productivity (i.e. number of papers published), citations (i.e. how recognised and referred to by other academics are those papers), awards (e.g. Nobel Prizes or Fields Medals), highly cited authors and so on.
Teaching Quality

What is the experience like for a student in the classroom? What is the availability of the faculty like from a student perspective? Do the teaching formats facilitate or obstruct interactivity? Everybody has has a bad lecturer, and everybody knows what the impact of a great teacher can be. A key role of a university is the nurture of tomorrow’s finest minds, inspiring thenext generatin of potential research academics. Typical indicators here are domestic teaching quality assessments, collation of student feedback, national student surveys, student faculty ratios and average class sizes.
Graduate Employability

Not all students see themselves become academics. Most, in fact, go out into the world seeking employment outside the academy. A rich university experience offers more than just a classroom experience, there are clubs and societies, lobby groups, international associations, voluntary organisations, sports clubs and a variety of other activities to get involved in. Not to mention a potentially rich social scene, a few thousand strangers to meet and interact with and many students’ first experience of being independent and away from home. Graduate employability to talks about more than academic strength but also about 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 average graduate salaries.
International Outlook

Does the university look beyond the borders of its own country? Does it contrbute not only to its own nation’s knowledge economy but to that of humankind in general? Effective indicators could be the proportion of international students and staff, the numbers of exchange students arriving and departing, the number and strength of international partnerships with other universities or the number of graduates pursuing further study at overseas universities.
