World University Rankings – What do they mean for Irish Higher Education and Research?
Monday, 13 February 2017, 7 – 8pm
The last decade has seen a rise in the prominence, and controversy, of world university rankings as a measurement tool for a university’s standing globally. Are the world university rankings an accurate measure of a university’s worth? The UK’s Higher Education Policy Institute’s (HEPI) latest report argues that they are not, but the rankings continue to gain currency globally. Should universities pay more attention to the rankings or forget about them? Are there better models out there? What do these rankings mean for students and Ireland’s higher education and research sector? To gain a fuller picture of the growing world university rankings landscape, and their benefits and challenges, join our distinguished panel for a discussion on Monday, 13 February at the Trinity Long Room Hub.
