University rankings generally focus on a number of variables which are not relevant to all students. Most of the ranking systems are heavily biased towards universities with research-intensive profiles and age-related reputations. However, many universities do not have a research focus and have not had the history to develop an age-related reputation. Instead these universities might focus on vocationally-oriented studies such as teaching, nursing and other health sciences, welfare studies, design, fashion, journalism and many other career-based studies. Interested parties should therefore be aware that ranking systems generally promote well-established more traditional universities and do not give much credit to universities, especially younger universities, which might be more focused on producing job-ready graduates for a diverse range of careers.
