Fact files for this years rankings have been distributed to institutions this evening.
Fact files are intended to give institutions fair warning of their results – for better or worse – enabling them to prepare press releases or brace themselves for tough questions. Sadly not everyone can go up and for every success story there is a setback. The whole world moves and institutions have to be progressive to maintain a position. For example, in the last year alone, the average proportion of international students amongst top 200 universities has increased by 5.8%.
The HTML fact files we have distributed look a little more basic than this more graphical example and include key links to specific resources we thought might be of interest, but this fictional example should give you an idea of what you can expect.
