About QS Rankings
The QS World University Rankings assesses universities using six performance indicators, with each carrying a different weighting when calculating overall scores.
Academic peer review：40%
Citations per faculty：20%
International student ratio：5%
International staff ratio：5%
Although the rankings can be a useful tool, we should never base the choice entirely on the results. After consulting the rankings, it’s recommended to spend time researching the university’s location and ethos, student life and course content – as well as checking the admission requirements and costs. Sometimes, a university which is not so highly ranked may be the best fit.
CIS School Counseling
With a dedicated guidance department, CIS graduates start to receive consultation at the beginning of high school. Our guidance department instructs students all the way through the application process. With the online system MyPass, all Alberta students have access to their academic history, personal information and official transcripts. Starting with in-depth communication with our students, we help them find the universities that best fit their future career choices and open countless doors to a bright future.
