Achieving world class university status

In the past decade the term ‘world- class university’ has become a catch phrase to describe research universities at the pinnacle of the tertiary education hierarchy.

Until recently, being deemed world-class was based mostly on perceived reputation. No rigorous measures existed to quantify the inputs and processes that lead to the status of world-class universities.
