Cebu Normal University (CNU) moves forward with its vision as it was hailed as a Three (3) Stars Institution by the Quacquarelli Symond (QS) Stars Rating System in March 2023.
The leading multidisciplinary research university of education’s three (3) out of five (5) stars rating means that CNU is a “well-recognised [institution] nationally and may have also begun to attract international recognition.”
The QS Stars rating system aims to help students identify the best universities that will fit their needs in a particular topic. Rather than ranking HEIs, they give ratings as they believe that each university is different and possesses distinct strengths.
Moreover, they utilize three (3) criteria which consist of several categories when rating universities fairly: (1) the core criteria categories focus on the components of a university; (2) the advanced criteria categories look at a university with a solid foundation; and (3) specialist criteria categories look intently at an institution’s areas of specialization.
QS Stars is one of the “world’s leading provider of services, analytics, and insight to the global higher education institutions (HEIs).” §
