London, July 20, 2016 — Released today, the QS University Rankings: BRICS 2016 see Chinese universities confirm their dominance of the tables. Led by Tsinghua University (1st) and Peking University (2nd), China now occupies the top five spots in the ranking, and accounts for almost half (23) of the top 50.

Published annually, the QS University Rankings: BRICS compares leading universities in the five BRICS countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Collectively accounting for 42% of the world’s population, these five nations remain significant players in the changing global economy, and all have placed higher education at the center of plans for continued development.

For 2016, the ranking has been extended to feature the top 250 BRICS universities (previously 200). This expansion particularly benefits Brazil and India, which now have 54 and 44 entries respectively (compared to 40 and 31 last year). Nonetheless, China remains the most-represented nation, appearing 86 times, followed by Russia (55). South Africa has 11 universities featured, led by the University of Cape Town in 14th place.
