All the results for PSL are available on the THE website.
  • QS World Ranking: Released by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a British agency specializing in education, theranking is based on criteria comparable to those of the THE, in particular academic reputation and the quality of research.

All the results for PSL can be consulted on the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) website.
