Warning on Rankings

University rankings usually focus on a number of factors which are not relevant to all the students. These university rankings, which present a list of institutions in the form of a league table, suggest a precision which is unlikely to be supported by detailed examination of the data. Students the world over use rankings for advice on which particular teaching program, at what campus to enroll in. Most don’t realize that many of the rankings scarcely measure teaching or the campus experience at all. They mostly measure research outcomes.  Most of the ranking systems are heavily influenced towards universities with reputations and research-intensive profiles. However, many universities do not have a research focus and have not had the history to develop an age-related reputation. Instead these universities might focus on vocationally-oriented studies such as nursing, Hospitality and other health sciences, design, fashion, journalism and many other career-based studies. So Students should therefore be aware that ranking systems generally promote well-established more traditional universities and do not give much credit to universities, especially younger universities, which might be more focused on producing job-ready graduates for a diverse range of careers.
