The annual ranking, now in its seventh year, is considered the most comprehensive assessment of research universities globally.

It measured 1,500 universities from 86 countries and territories based on 13 weighted indicators including global and regional research reputation, publication record, extent of international collaborations, and impact of its citations.

This year the top 10 schools are either American or British.

The US has the most universities (255), followed by China (176) and the UK (87).

Vietnamese universities have enhanced their reputation in recent years by being consistently listed in world rankings.

The Hanoi and HCMC branches of the Vietnam National University were also listed among the top 1,000 universities in the 2020 rankings last February by British firm Quacquarelli Symonds.

Ton Duc Thang University, which has two campuses in HCM City, was among the top 400 global universities in the Times Higher Education’s University Impact Rankings last April.

In August, the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) also announced the ranking of the world’s best universities in 2020, and Ton Duc Thang University was the only Vietnamese university to make the list. The university was ranked in the Top 701-800 globally, an increase of at least 200 notches compared to the 2019 rankings, VOV said./.
