To be included in QS rankings, there are certain criteria that a university must satisfy. These are:
- The institute must provide full degree programs in at least two out of five broad subject categories. Further, in each broad faculty area, at least two narrow subjects should be offered. Please find more details about the broad and narrow subject categories here http://www.iu.qs.com/university-rankings/subject-tables/
Where an institution only provides degree courses in one broad faculty area, we consider this a single-faculty institute. Such institutions may appear only in our rankings by subject.
- The University must provide full degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Where an institution only provides degrees at either undergraduate or postgraduate, it is classified as Single-Level Institute.
- There must have been at least three graduating classes at both levels before eligibility is conferred.
