Rankings Become Big Politics

University performance in global rankings has become a favorite weapon of politicians around the world. Scotland's first Minister has noted that there are five Scottish universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and that the Scottish government will "continue to work with our universities to make two sure that they continue to be that fantastic success story"

She did not mention that  there are only two Scottish universities in the top 200 of the Shanghai rankings and in the US News Best Global Universities.
