Thinking of studying abroad? You’d be wise to consider Chinese universities.
According to the much respected Times Higher Education Asia Rankings, Tsinghua University and Peking University are the second and third best in Asia. Go China!
Universities across Asia were judged on a wide ranging criteria, including international outlook, research, teaching and knowledge transfer.
This year’s list includes 350 universities from 25 countries and regions.
Singapore’s National University annoyingly topped the list for the third year in a row, while Tsinghua University overtook Pekinng to become China’s best higher learning institution.
However, Peking University still ranked higher than Tsinghua in the Times Higher Education World Rankings due to different categories carrying more weight.
Tsinghua and Peking came out 27th and 30th in the World Rankings, respectively, giving a boost to the reputation of Chinese universities abroad.
In the World Rankings, Japan is the Asian country/region boasting the most listings, with 89 of its universities getting a nod.
Chinese universities came second with the inclusion of 63 institutions in the table.
Both Taiwan and Thailand fell in the rankings.
The top 10 Asian universities are as follows:
1. National University of Singapore
2. Tsinghua University
3. Peking University
4. University of Hong Kong
5. (TIE) Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
5. (TIE) Nanyang Technological University
7. Chinese University of Hong Kong
8. University of Tokyo
9. Seoul National University
10. Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology

China’s universities have gone from strength to strength and are looking to keep doing so in order to gain international recognition. In this translated article we look at a recent study ranking over 700 of the nation’s top tertiary institutions.
The 2013 QS World University Rankings were released on September 10. This year, 25 Chinese universities made in into the top 700.
The Great Fire Wall of China is about to get a little bit taller. From the end of next month, overseas providers of virtual private networks (VPNs) will be blocked in China, state media has reported.
Ethnically Chinese foreigners can now gain a five-year China visa, under new rules.
Shanghai has been named China’s top city for expats and business, followed by Guangzhou and Beijing.
For those of us that have taught in Chinese universities and seen cheating and taking final exams again if you fail, writing anything good about mainland Chinese universities just looks like a propaganda piece of literature and I don't even want to start on copying others papers and paying for papers that they don't write.
