For the first time, three Vietnamese universities have been named in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings.
They are the Hanoi-based Vietnam National University, Hanoi University of Science and Technology, and the Ho Chi Minh City-based Vietnam National University. Given many challenges facing local education, this signals chances for Vietnamese universities to integrate and develop.
The Hanoi University of Science and Technology has become one of the world’s leading universities. This is a great honour for its teachers and students.
Along with the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, the Hanoi-based Vietnam National University is ranked in the top 801-1000 standings relating to criteria in terms of teaching, research and international integration.
It is hoped the reputation of Vietnamese universities will be raised in the world arena following the rankings. For the Hanoi-based Vietnam National University, this is a good chance to evaluate its quality.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings includes almost 1,400 universities across 92 countries. It is the only global university league table to judge research-intensive universities across each one of their core missions such as teaching, research and international outlook.-VNA
