To note, the PTS ranking is voluntary, so AppliedHE asked the university to send data and conduct a survey. So, if there is a university that does not get a ranking, it is probably because the campus refuses to send data or finds out too late. However, campuses that are not involved in this edition can also participate in the next edition.

The ranking of a PTS on AppliedHE can also be different with different rankings because the methodology is indeed different. This ranking itself focuses on teaching and learning, employability in a broad sense, and research in a broad sense.

As previously mentioned, the AppliedHE version of the PTS ranking measures the quality of teaching and learning, whether alumni can get jobs, and campus research. This is how the weight of the assessment looks like:

  1. Teaching and Learning (40%)
    The benchmark with the highest weight is evaluated according to a survey of college students. As for what is measured is related to curriculum, exams, teachers, facilities, social life, and so on.
  2. Employability (15%)
    This factor is measured from a survey of new graduates which is also known as alumni tracking. AppliedHE looks at the number of graduates who report getting a job as a share of the total number of respondents as well as a share of the total number of graduates.
  3. Research (15%)
    In order to measure research aspects, AppliedHE uses the Google Scholar database. The research looked at was that published during the past five years and counted the number of Google Scholar profiles per faculty member with at least one research paper (5%), the number of papers per faculty member (5%), and the number of citations per paper (5%).
  4. Community engagement (10%)
    This fourth factor is measured by the involvement of students in social activities, the number of students receiving scholarships, grants, assistance, and media coverage received based on Google News. Involvement in the media itself is a good indicator to see campus involvement with local issues.
  5. Internationalization (10%)
    The internationalization aspect is calculated according to the number of international students and faculty on campus, whether for exchange or degree studies. Students who attend virtually from abroad are also taken into account.
  6. Institutional Reputation (10%)
    In this last benchmark, PTS participating in the ranking were asked to nominate 10 institutions they respect.
