Be rational about university rankings

China Daily | Updated: 2018-06-13 08:24

IN THE LATEST QS WORLD UNIVERSITY RANKINGS, an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds, a British company specializing in education, Tsinghua University has risen from number 25 to 17, and Peking University from 38 to 30, and among its list of the world's top 100 universities, six are from the Chinese mainland. Guangming Daily comments:

However, It is too early, as some have done, to praise the Chinese universities for having made remarkable progress, because different rankings employ different standards.

Almost at the same time, the Center for World University Rankings, a consulting organization headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, published its world university rankings, saying that the Chinese mainland only has two universities among the world's top 100 with Tsinghua ranked 92 and Peking University 98.
