Rankings

This is a detailed breakdown of university rankings in various destinations around the world, based on our expert knowledge and years of industry experience.

Most students will first look at rankings to understand the universities they are interested in. Rankings are important, but they are not the only reason you should choose a university. Other factors you should consider are the school’s location, the course content, value for money and teaching quality. Our highly knowledgeable Intake advisors will be able to sit down with you and provide much more insight into these areas so that you can make a more informed decision on which school is right for you. It is important to remember that rankings will vary according to the criteria used by each organisation. We therefore do not recommend basing your school selection on rankings alone, but instead suggest thinking more comprehensively about your personal needs.
