Universidad Europea has received four stars out of a maximum of five in the prestigious QS Stars international university rating. QS Stars ratings allow students to gain a better perspective of an institution’s qualities, looking at everything from the employability of its graduates to its focus on research, inclusiveness and facilities. The rating evaluates an institution based on more than 50 different indicators, and awards universities between one and five+ stars in 11 different fields, as well as an overall institution rating. Universidad Europea joins a small and select group of institutions to receive four stars after completing the review and rating.
The fields rated by QS Stars include research, teaching, employability, internationalization, facilities, online & distance learning, social responsibility, innovation, arts & culture, inclusiveness and specialist criteria. Universidad Europea received the maximum score of five stars in employability, for its work to prepare students for professional success and for high employment rates of its graduates; teaching, based on the work the university has done to support students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to be successful; facilities, based on the university’s technological infrastructure, sport facilities and laboratories; and social responsibility.
Additionally, the university received four stars in internationalization, based on the number of students who have an international experience as part of their program and the number of international students that attend the university; and inclusiveness, based on the university’s work to expand access to higher education through scholarships and grants.
