Japan's universities improve in global rankings after years of decline

Share

Hopkins shares the No. 12 ranking-as well as the eighth spot among USA universities-with the University of Pennsylvania.

On a positive note, Iraq's biggest institution, Baghdad University, made the rankings for the first time, coming in the 801 and 1000 band, scoring well on global outlook.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings shows the country's two leading institutions both rising and 103 establishments now represented, up from 89 a year ago. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) rises one place to number four but the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) drops from last year's joint third position, to number five.

The university could also give most western higher education institutions a run for their money in terms of post graduate application costs, charging modest tuition fees of RMB 30,000 ($4,360) per year and RMB 40 to 80 per day ($4 to $12) for lodging in a single room.

Simon Marginson, professor of higher education at the University of Oxford and director of the Centre for Global Higher Education, said that he was "not surprised" by Tsinghua's advance.

This is according to the latest 2019 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings. These performance indicators are grouped into five areas: teaching, research, citations, global outlook and industry income.

Meanwhile nine Australian universities were listed among the top 200, but two-thirds of those have slid on previous rankings.

No Thai institutes have even made it to the list of 500 best universities, let alone top 100. The ranking of more than 1250 universities world wide has 49 Indian Universities in the list. IIT Bhubaneswar is in the rank band of 601-800 along with IIT Guwahati, IIT Madras, IIT Hyderabad, University of Delhi, Banaras Hindu University, Amrita University, Tezpur University, Panjab University, Jadavpur University and Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Pune.

"This is because the transformative challenges that universities will face in the coming years are in the area of Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR)", he said.
