"high-impact, globally collaborative research"

QS Senior Vice President Ben Sowter said: “The inaugural edition of the QS Europe Ranking is a landmark step and a long time in the making. It offers a unique opportunity for universities in one of the world’s most competitive higher education landscapes to benchmark themselves against their international peers and for its policymakers to assess individual institutional performance across the broadest range of datasets in any of our rankings.”

He continued: “The UK, somewhat predictably shines across indicators, underpinned in part by the global renown of the historic Oxbridge universities and its high-impact, globally collaborative research.

“However, signposts for success are illuminated in all locations by the respective challenges identified by the datasets, whether incentivising international faculty and students, developing cross-border research partnerships or expanding teaching capacity.”
