When discussing quality in higher education, it is hard to avoid national league tables of performance, because they have become so ubiquitous. I will start by describing national league tables in the UK. The reasons for starting from the UK are various, quite apart from the fact that I have been brought up in the UK system and am therefore more familiar with it. However, league tables in the UK have some special features which make them rather different from, for example, the league tables produced by Maclean’s in Canada or those produced by US News and World Report in the USA.
