PSNews - The US News & World Report recently announced the 2021 Best Global Universities. Of which, there are four Vietnamese universities listed in the chart.
According to the 2021 Best Global Universities, Ton Duc Thang University in HCMC and the Hanoi University of Science and Technology ranked 623rd and 1,356th in the list. Vietnam National University-Hanoi and Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City came in at 949th and 1,271st, respectively.
The annual ranking, now in its seventh yearly edition, is considered the most comprehensive assessment of research universities globally.
The overall Best Global Universities rankings encompass nearly 1,500 top institutions spread across 86 countries, up from 81 countries last year. The first step in producing these rankings, which are powered by Clarivate, involved creating a pool of 1,748 universities that was used to rank the top 1,500 schools.
To create the pool of 1,748, U.S. News first included the top 250 universities in the results of Clarivate's global reputation survey, described further below. Next, U.S. News added institutions that had met the minimum threshold of at least 1,250 papers published in 2014 to 2018, down from 1,500 papers last year. The last step was to remove duplicates and institutions that are not schools to reach the final 2021 ranking pool of 1,748 institutions.
US News & World Report is the global leader in quality rankings that empower people to make better, more informed decisions about important issues affecting their lives.
