Kyushu U jumps to 124 in QS rankings

Release date: 2020.07.02



In the QS World University Rankings 2021 announced on June 10, Kyushu U jumped up eight spots from last year to number 124.

Largely propelling the rise is a greater confidence among employers that they are hiring a competent, innovative, and effective graduate when choosing someone with a degree from Kyushu U, as is indicated in this year’s employer reputation index.

Incidentally, Kyushu U was ranked first overall last year in a domestic survey conducted by Nikkei HR and Nikkei Inc. on the employability of graduates.

The improvement in global rankings is confirmation that the university’s internationalization efforts have paid off outside Japan as well.
