18: Global University Rankings

The Editor of Times Higher Education World University Rankings, Phil Baty, joins The Academic Citizen to discuss the importance of global university rankings and how they work. Baty says that rankings bodies use different criteria and methodologies to “rate” higher education institutions. Therefore, it is important to look beyond face value and deeper into the details of the data.

We also chat to some students about their experiences with and understanding of global university rankings.
