ELIA recently formed a working group to analyse existing ranking models and to initiate a debate with ELIA members on possible useful tools to be implemented in the future on this matter.
University ranking systems have become a prominent way of comparing universities around the world. Although it is controversial, it has a huge impact on the public funding of universities, the number of student applications, the reputation of the universities and, above all, the ‘value’ of students on the ‘market’ after graduation.
This working group organised a first consultation session during the ELIA Afternoon at the Biennial Conference to discuss with interested ELIA members what they see as priorities, their experiences in the field, concerns, opportunities, and additional references.
