About QS Gauge

QS-ERA India Private Limited is a revolutionary joint-venture between QS Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd. of the United Kingdom and India’s ERA Foundation.

Based in Bangalore, QS-ERA produces QS I-GAUGE college & university rating tools and school rating tools which capture the essence of the dynamic Indian education system and conforms to international standards and best practices.

QS maintains complete operational control and supervision on the processes. Each rating produced is strictly monitored for quality control by the QS Intelligence Unit in London. This is the same team that produces the authoritative QS World University Rankings (since 2004) and related regional and subject rankings, as well as the globally recognised QS STARS university ratings system. Close supervision by QS (IU) ensures the independence, quality and integrity of the ratings, leading to their global recognition.
