Are university rankings important?
The THE World University Rankings can help you sort your options and make you aware of universities you may not have otherwise heard of! It is compiled on the basis of its own list of factors taken into consideration.
At the same time, university rankings should be used together with additional research of each university or school so you can make an informed choice about where to go based on your own preferences.
It’s important to note that these tools aren’t the only measure of how appropriate the university or school may be for you; it’s just one of the elements to consider.
How can you use the university rankings to shortlist universities?
You can further analyse a university on the basis of country/region, course/program and your preferred subject. If you wish to study astronomy, look for universities that rank higher in your preferred field of study. It’s quite possible that the university ranking the highest globally may not be the best in this specific department of your choice.
Once you’ve your list of shortlisted universities, dive deeper by studying each of its curriculum, modules offered, faculties, teaching methodologies, culture, campus life, and sustainability.
