QS World Merit
World Merit is a global charity working towards creating a more equal world. We believe that talent is distributed equally across the world but opportunity isn't. That is why we are working tirelessly to develop a global platform for passionate and collaborative youth that can access opportunity based on merit.
To mobilise and support young people worldwide to learn, grow and take action for a regenerative future.
Every person has equal opportunity and support earned on merit to lead positive change.

Our Core ValuesQS World Merit’s Values & Principles are the pillars of our organisation and are set by the community. They form our guidelines and uphold our vision for running Councils, supporting our members, and ultimately conducting ourselves within QS World Merit. We strive to be as radically inclusive as possible. We are a community for everyone. We acknowledge that what excludes people is an inability to communicate in English and access to the internet. We are working hard to overcome this so we can truly be inclusive to all.
