The NorthCap University (NCU), Gurugram recently joined an elite group of Indian universities by scoring an overall rating of 4 stars in the prestigious Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Stars Ratings. Less than ten universities in India have this distinction.
QS’s 4-star rating cements NCU’s position among the most sought-after universities of India. QS Stars rating system focuses on teaching excellence, state-of-the-art content, pedagogical approaches, and learning outcomes. QS follows a detailed, unbiased audit process to rate academic institutions on a scale of 1 to 5 stars for overall performance and separately for eight criteria.
According to the rating assessment report, NCU has achieved a perfect score of 5 stars in Teaching, Employability, Academic Development, Online Learning, and Inclusiveness. The ratings validate NCU’s exceptional teaching standards, overall academic excellence, and focus on student success which will be complemented by NCU’s recent alliance with Arizona State University and Cintana Education.
NCU is excited to receive this recognition as the QS Star Rating System is one of the most widely accepted evaluation systems for universities worldwide. NCU’s achievement speaks volumes about its dedication to achieving global academic excellence.
Speaking about the university’s remarkable achievement, Dr. Milind Padalkar, pro-chancellor, The NorthCap University, said, “We are delighted about this achievement which validates our approach for our offerings and also strengthens our belief that the university is progressively moving in the right direction to add value to our student’s academic and professional development.

Further, the QS ratings re-affirms that we are on the right path to be the Top Ranked Innovation-Focused Private University in North India by 2026.”
Dr Ashwin Fernandes, regional director, QS – MEA & South Asia, said, “We would like to congratulate NCU for achieving this high rating in their first assessment and hope that with its progressive vision, NCU will continue to maintain its superior academic standards. At QS, we believe in quantifying higher education institutions’ performance and growth via industry intelligence and analytics services for students to make an informed decision about their career and choice of university. Besides, it is also useful for universities as it helps them attain international brand value. Hence, NCU’s rating proves its merit as one of the leading institutions of India.”
