QS I-GAUGE is a nationwide higher education rating system for universities and colleges in India, consisting of six core criteria and eight advanced criteria, ranging from Teaching and Learning to Research and Innovation. The rating offers academic institutions a roadmap to effectively benchmark their performance with reference to key indicators and further establish developmental strategies for improving their educational services. Each rating granted by QS I-GAUGE is strictly supervised and monitored by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Intelligence Unit in the UK, which ensures the quality, independence, comprehensiveness, and integrity of the ratings, leading to global recognition.
QS I-GAUGE has formed its subject ratings methodology for Indian institutions bearing a long-term objective in mind, where institutions are assessed based on how particular subjects are taught in order to fulfill the present market trend. This rating system, which is specifically curated for India, enables students, parents, and a diverse set of stakeholders to understand the areas an institution is good at and the areas on which it needs to work on.
