QS Stars is a rating system which was inaugurated In the United Kingdom and provides a detailed appraisal of an educational institution, and is used as an essential tool for prospective students to identify which universities rank highest in specific fields of study. Universities and educational institutions are ranked on criteria like program strength, facilities, graduate employability, social responsibility, inclusiveness, amongst others.

 

Emirates Aviation University

 

Established in 1991, Emirates Aviation University is a leading educational institution in the Middle East for aviation related programmes. The University is the academic wing of the Emirates Group; a global travel and tourism conglomerate known worldwide for their commitment to the highest standards of quality in every aspect of business.

 

The University is licensed by the UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education and offers an extensive range of educational opportunities designed to provide students with the best aviation related specializations.

 

EAU offers a new six-month internship programme with the Emirates Group for students who demonstrate extraordinary academic performance.

 

QS Stars University Ratings

 

QS Stars understands that universities are different to one another and therefore need to be assessed on a range of categories that recognize distinct strengths. It also recognizes that each student is looking for something different, and not all universities – even the highest ranked institutions – suit every student.

 

Using QS Stars when searching for your future program will help you understand which universities have performed well against a comprehensive list of indicators, allowing you to match your interests to the universities that are strong in the topics that matter to you.

 

In the methodology used for QS Stars, universities are evaluated in dozens of indicators across at least eight categories. After the assessment, universities are awarded with an overall Star result which ranges from 0 to 5+ Stars, depending on the number of points achieved through the evaluation.
