“Not all universities that might be expected to be ranked are present in this inaugural edition, and not every country is featured, as the process is voluntary and minimum thresholds were set for responses to the fledgling student survey, but we expect the rankings to grow rapidly in the coming years as they are embraced as an important resource.”
