It has almost become a story of a steady stallion to maintain the lead, whatsoever. KIIT Deemed to be University has earned a new distinction to become the first Indian university to achieve the “Five Stars Rating” from the prestigious QS Star Ratings System.

Hard work pays and KIITDU has the rare place in the comity of the knowledge citadels, racing ahead of many in the last nearly three decades.

The QS Star Rating results were published on April 27, 2021. The QS Intelligence Unit, a division of QS Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd, rated KIIT as a Five Stars institution, the maximum achievable, after rigorous and independent data collection and analysis of performance metrics in a range of indicators across eight categories. The rating will be valid for three years.

The QS Intelligence Unit also compiles the coveted QS World University Rankings. However, the QS Star rating system evaluates universities across a wide range of important performance indicators as set against pre-established international standards.

Just last week, KIIT had achieved a rank of 201+ globally in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021.

By covering a broader range of criteria, than any world ranking exercise, the system shines a light on both the excellence and the diversity of the rated institution.

“KIIT has been rated as a Five Stars Institution on the basis of its excellence and diversity by the QS Stars rating system operated by the QS Intelligence Unit, the independent compiler of the QS World University Rankings since 2004. We resolve to continue to do our best” said Dr. Achyut Samanta,  founder of KIIT, said.
