QS World University Rankings

QSQS World University RankingTHES - QS World University Rankings
It is the highest-ranked university in the country, being ranked 83rd worldwide in the 2019/20 QS World University Rankings.
In a report, Peter Wills from the University of Auckland wrote of the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings: "But we note also that this survey establishes its rankings by appealing to university staff, even offering financial enticements to participate (see Appendix II). Staff are likely to feel it is in their greatest interest to rank their own institution more highly than others. This means the results of the survey and any apparent change in ranking are highly questionable, and that a high ranking has no real intrinsic value in any case. We are vehemently opposed to the evaluation of the University according to the outcome of such PR competitions."
