Scrapes the QS World University Rankings to get a list of the top universities.


An API to get a list of top universities based on the QS World University Rankings in various formats (HTML table, JSON, CSV, Excel, XML or RSS feed).

Currently, the scraper supports two modes:

  • Basic mode (to get a list of ranked universities with basic data like name, country, and link to its detail)

  • To scrape more information in the detailed mode
  • To be able to filter countries for a region (e.g. Europe)
