The QS World University Rankings is a ranking of the world’s top 700 universities by a company called Quacquarelli Symonds using a method that has published annually since 2004.

The QS rankings were originally published in publication with Times Higher Education (a weekly British magazine based in London) from 2004 to 2009 as the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings. In 2010, Times Higher Education and QS ended their collaboration. QS assumed sole publication of the existing methodology, while Times Higher Education created a new ranking methodology, published as Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
