Don’t like university rankings?

To understand their argument, look at the page headed ‘disclaimer’.
Of course, just because the top universities in a league able are all incredibly rich doesn’t make it inaccurate; but perhaps it should prompt a debate about the concentration of money in a global higher education system. It might also remind us that our inability to fund Irish universities properly will have inevitable consequences in the rankings.Explore posts in the same categories: higher education, university
