Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU) has climbed 15 places to rank 124th in the QS's top 500 Regional Rankings Asia 2019 category.


 The rankings of Vietnam National University, Hanoi basing on 11 criteria

According to the QS's report which was released on October 23, Vietnam has seven universities in the list including Vietnam National University-Hanoi, Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Ton Duc Thang University, Can Tho University, Danang University and Hue University.

Speaking with Dantri/Dtinews, Prof. Nguyen Huu Duc, VNU Vice President, in addition to 10 criteria as in previous years, this years' rankings included the International Research Network for the assessment.

"VNU had some good criteria such as the Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, Citations Per Paper, and Outbound Exchange Students," Prof. Duc said.



VNU was listed among the world’s top 1,000 universities for the first time in the QS World University Rankings 2018.

According to the VNU Vice President, the World University Rankings emphasises research more than the Asia University Rankings. For example, the weight of academic reputation has been raised to 40%. In addition, the QS World rankings no longer measure institutional research quality based on an institution’s number of articles, but by calculating the total number of citations received by all papers produced by that institution’s faculty members across a five-year period (20%). The internationalisation criteria focus only on the number of international lecturers and students directly involved in teaching and learning to earn a diploma at a university (10%).

This year, 4,763 universities from 151 countries were evaluated and 1,011 universities from 85 countries were qualified for final rankings. Vietnam National University, HCM City is listed in among the 701-750 ranks on the list and Vietnam National University, Hanoi is featured in the top 801-1,000.
