According to Martin Ince, of the Times Higher Education Supplement “The 2007 THES-QS World University Rankings are the most rigorous and complete so far. They show that the US and UK model of independent universities supported with significant state funding produces great results, but they also prove that academic excellence is found on every continent.”

Nunzio Quacquarelli, Managing Director of QS, says: “The THES-QS World University Rankings has met an important need amongst universities, employers and young candidates to be able to compare and benchmark institutions across borders. They have generated intense interest in recent years – this year, over one million unique visitors have checked out the results and methodology on www.topuniversities.com.
