ZJU continues to rise in the THE World University Rankings


Zhejiang University continues to rise in the newly released Times Higher Education World University Rankings, climbing 19 places to rank 75th in the world.

The table is based on 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across four areas: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

ZJU maintains its strength in the knowledge transfer pillar with the full score of 100 while achieving the improved performance in teaching and research pillars. The University’s consistent performance in the international rankings is a reflection of ZJU’s strong focus on talent, innovation and its global impact.

As the largest and most diverse university rankings to date, this year’s league table reveals how the Covid-19 pandemic has started to shift global higher education performance.

With the two institutions (Peking University and Tsinghua University) in the top 20 for the first time, Mainland China now has the joint fifth highest number of institutions in the top 200 (up from joint seventh last year), overtaking Canada and on a par with the Netherlands.
