Vietnamese universities seek world rankings

Some Vietnamese universities may be named in Times Higher Education (THE)’s World University Rankings in the next few years, a representative from THE said at a workshop in Hanoi on June 13. 

Justin Tay, THE’s Regional Director and General Manager (Asia), said he has studied Vietnam’s prospects in the rankings, and found that there is a rapid increase of articles from Vietnamese higher education institutions published on international publications.

He also spoke of the success of Asian universities in building their brands and internationalization.

Pham Quang Hung, head of the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training (MoET)’s International Cooperation Department, said through the workshop, domestic higher education institutions would learn more about THE’s World University Rankings, one of the most prestigious rankings in the world.

He expressed his hope that there will be Vietnamese higher education institutions in the THE’s list.

Hoang Minh Son, President of Hanoi University of Science and Technology, said his university has sent its statistics to THE to look for a seat in the rankings.

A similar workshop was also held in Ho Chi Minh City on June 12, aiming to help domestic universities set strategic targets and improve Vietnam’s higher education reputation in the world.

World University Rankings is the definitive list of the top universities globally, rating more than 1,250 institutions across 86 countries in 2019.

It is the only global university league table to judge research-intensive universities across each one of their core missions: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation), international outlook (staff, students and research); citations (research influence); and industry income (knowledge transfer).
