This week, it’s my turn to take over the QS World University Rankings blog to talk to you about how a strong ranking position can benefit the education we offer here at Bath and impact student recruitment.
The rankings are an important indicator of our global reputation, and strong performance can bring significant benefits for our education community.
These include improved international student recruitment and faculty recruitment, both of which help attract the very best minds and future stars to Bath, regardless of where they come from. As well as widening the global perspective of your department, these benefits have an important role to play in growing research-led teaching.
Nominating is straightforward
This year we have introduced a new streamlined process to make uploading contacts quick and easy. Simply click on the submission form below and add in your contact information.
QS Academic Contact Collection Form
You do not need to seek consent as we have a formal process in place to do this. Your contacts will not be submitted to QS unless they have agreed.
We are asking you to nominate any academic contacts you are happy to share by Friday 28 October. Contacts will be approached for their consent in November and December prior to submission to QS in January.
All of the contacts you might share are of equal value, including Early Career Researchers. This means we can be inclusive whatever stage of their career, or experience, however international contacts do carry a higher weighting.
For more information on how QS uses your contact information, as well as example sources of contacts please refer to last week’s blog from Professor Philip Allmendinger.
Further help and support
The International Relations Office has the expertise and data to help you navigate the contact collection process if you require further guidance and support or you can reach out to your ADI.
If you can spare a few minutes to submit contacts and support this year’s contact collection process, I would really appreciate it. If everyone in our academic community gets involved, we can ensure our QS World Ranking reflects the international excellence of the teaching you all work so hard to deliver.
