London, 11 September 2019 — Times Higher Education today announced its World University Rankings 2020. The rankings include 1,400 universities across 92 countries, standing as the largest and most diverse university rankings ever to date.

The University of Oxford tops the rankings. It is in the first place. The California Institute of Technology is second, while the University of Cambridge is in the third place.

Stanford, Yale, Harvard, UC Berkeley, and Imperial College London all appear in the top fifteen.

Times Higher Education ranks universities on 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook.

Mainland China now provides both of Asia’s top two universities, with Tsinghua and Peking universities finishing at 23rd and 24th place respectively. The country’s universities have continued to expand their influence and presence on the world stage.

Ha Wei, Associate Dean, Graduate School of Education, Peking University, says that China’s excellence initiatives have “poured billions of US dollars” into select groups of universities.” “Talent attraction programs” have also helped the institutions improve, he said.

The latest Double World-Class project, launched in 2015, includes a “monitoring and evaluation system to make it more results-oriented,” Ha Wei added. It means that “those who are deemed less efficient in using the resources will get removed from the list of beneficiaries.”

“I believe the upward trend for Chinese universities will continue,” he said.
