The 2021 STC UNIVERSITY INDEX

The 2021 STC University Indexes is a composed of 2 very different rankings: the University Index and the University City Index. The University Index (table) measures the education offered by each university and their accessibility, both academic and financial. Our index looks for a balance between those three factors to facilitate the choice for an individual. The ranking will hopefully permit you to make the most rewarding choice in selecting a university for yourself or your children.
The University City Index (map) ranks cities based on the sum of the score of each university of a given city. The top cities will produce the best and most numerous university graduates. In this index, university size plays a role. The world's best universities are in Europe and North America, but many East-Asian Universities have been rising in the ranking every year. The top Chinese universities are now competing with the Western ones. In the last 5 years, ETH Zurich has been topping the STC University Index by offering quality education and being very affordable financially and accessible academically. London has also been topping our University City Index since its inception due to its high number of quality institutions..

The vast majority of the data was taken from the annual QS University Ranking.

http://www.topuniversities.com/qs-world-university-rankings

Missing data or sometime incorrect ones were taken the official university website.

The STC University Index is provided by Stephane Tajick Consulting.

Methodology

The data has been collected in November 2020.

 

The 2021 QS University Score

 

The QS University score has been developed by QS in order to rank the world’s universities. Here is what they have to say about it: “The QS World University Rankings® are designed to help prospective students make informed comparisons of leading universities around the world. Based on six performance indicators, the ranking assesses university performance across four areas: research, teaching, employability and internationalization.

 

Each of the six indicators carries a different weighting when calculating the overall scores (see below). Four of the indicators are based on ‘hard’ data, and the remaining two are based on major global surveys – one of academics and another of employers – each the largest of their kind.”

 

We have taken the top 503 (cut-off QS score of 25) universities in the world from the 2021 QS University Ranking.

 

The Fees

 

Fees highlight the average annual fees for undergraduates for both local students and international students. The fees are taken mostly from the QS ranking, but because in some case the QS ranking is incomplete or imprecise we have added some of our own data. QS takes the average tuition costs. Our data includes the minimum fees that every student is required to pay, such as registration fees and annual contributions. Tuition fees for our data are the general annual costs, usually similar to a Bachelor in Economy, for example. Our data is taken directly from the school’s website for 2021.

 

The Number of Students

 

The number of students includes both local and international students and these figures are all taken from the QS ranking.

 

Acceptance Rate

 

The acceptance rate is not an aggregate measure, as such a thing doesn’t exist. It is estimated based on numerous different standards on acceptance, from acceptance rate in the U.S., to SAT scores and specialized tests elsewhere. It’s the variable with the highest probability of error and in some cases based on interpretation. It is measured from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest chance of acceptance. Acceptance is based on local students from the province. The value can change for foreign students or student from out of province.
