Rankings like the QS World University Ranking are primarily important to universities with regard to attracting international talent, as they are regularly consulted by students and researchers all over the world. Alongside the Shanghai and THE rankings, the edition published by QS is one of the three leading international university rankings. Each of these rankings is compiled using a slightly different methodology, each with its own advantages and limitations.
