Rankings

Discover the world's top universities with the QS World University Rankings by Region and the QS World University Rankings by Location.

While many of the world’s top universities produce high-achieving graduates every year, employers frequently express concerns that academic institutions aren’t doing enough to prepare their students for the world of work.

Soft skills in particular are mentioned repeatedly, while there is a notable ‘skills gap’ in some industries, notably engineering and technology.

Given the fierce competition for graduate roles around the world, students should be seriously considering how their university can prepare them adequately for full-time employment, by connecting them with global employers and ensuring they develop the necessary skills and knowledge.

For example, one in two recent British graduates is not in graduate work - suggesting a university degree from one of the world’s most reputable universities is no longer enough by itself to guarantee career success.

If you’re concerned about your future career prospects and wondering which universities are best-placed to help you succeed, our ranking below is a great place to start.
