Abstract
The purpose of the annual EUA report on rankings is to inform universities about the methodologies and the potential impact of the existing most popular global rankings. The EUA report on rankings demonstrated that the indicators used by the global league tables are oriented towards no more than 1,000 of the world’s elite research universities, leaving out the other 16,500 universities and that therefore higher education policies should not be based solely on ranking results. The report analyses the methodologies of rankings underlining their strong points and weaknesses. The discussion at the EQAF session will be focussed on the ability of university rankings to reflect on the performance of universities in research and in teaching and whether rankings measure quality as it is often stated.
