    Chinese Universities Dominate New Top Universities in Asia Ranking

    124 universities from China including 82 from the Chinese mainland, 7 from Hong Kong, 34 from Taiwan and 1 from Macao have entered into the list of “QS University Rankings: Asia 2016” – a ranking of the 350 top universities in Asia.

    National University of Singapore tops the ranking, followed by the University of Hong Kong, according to the list.

    Tsinghua University from the Chinese mainland placed within the top ten, ranking fifth and surpassing Peking University which ranks ninth on the list.


    Dr. Zhang Yan, QS’ director for China operations notes that in regards to higher education, China takes the lead in academic research, innovation and talent cultivation. Further he believes the government should put more efforts to encourage investments in the area and carry on reforms in education to attract more young talents to come to the country to study and work.

    The ranking is made by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a British company founded in 1990, specializing in education and study abroad programs.

    The result is based on a set of criteria which is designed to reflect key priorities for universities in Asia, including academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, citations per paper, etc., according to the education institution.

    I am interested in seeing how the end of the brain drain by America (see Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan as examples) combined with a possible brain drain BY China will affect the Anglo-Americans. Some 40-50% phd(s) earned in America are by foreigners, of which the Chinese and South Asians constitute a [at or near] majority.


    These geniuses migrated because of better living conditions, research infrastructure, opportunities, etc. All of this is predicable except to those who erroneously believe that these geniuses flew to America for democracy . lol
