Whilst it is good to be proud of Australia's achievements, the baseline
for the rating appears to be based on "Q-Stars.
This list of top universities would appear to be a self registering
system and should therefore be treated only as a partial subset.
E.G: In Australia, there are only 8 universities listed. of the 36
that we do have. 
Globally, the list only compares some of the universities from only the
United Arab Emirates
On that basis, what we would appear to have is a list of those
universities that market themselves the best internationally.
