Tsinghua University Breaks Into Top 20 World Universities for the First Time
The last edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings ranked a Chinese University in the top 20 for the first time. Tsinghua University climbed to number 18, with Peking University close behind at 21. The top of the listings, still dominated by the US and the UK, shows little change from previous years. Harvard ranks number one for the sixth year running and with 43 institutions in the top 100, the United States still dominates the list. Tsinghua was also positioned in the top 10 in the largest ranking of the world’s top universities by subject: Tsinghua’s three top 10 subjects are: Architecture, Engineering (Civil and Structural) and Material Sciences.
