3 Vietnam universities among global top 1,000

Duy Tan University in Da Nang City and Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are placed in the 801-1,000 band in the rankings compiled by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a British firm specializing in overseas education.

This marks the first time ever that Duy Tan has made it into the top 1,000 and the fifth consecutive year for the two national universities.

Their 2023 rankings remained unchanged compared to the 2022 results, but compared to 2020 and 2019, Vietnam National University in HCMC had dropped from rank 701-750.

This year's QS World University rankings feature over 1,400 universities from around the world, making it the biggest university grading yet by QS.

Vietnam has two other schools ranked. HCMC's Ton Duc Thang University is in the 1,001-1,200 band, the same position as in 2022 and 2020. Last year, the school was not ranked.

Hanoi University of Science and Technology is placed in the 1,201-1,400 group. Its rank stays unchanged compared to 2022 but fell 200 spots compared to 2021.

For the QS ranking, institutions are assessed across six categories, including academic reputation, which looks at the teaching and research quality of the world’s universities; employer reputation, which assesses how institutions prepare students for successful careers, and which institutions provide the most competent, innovative, and effective graduates; faculty/student ratio, which assesses how institutions provide students with meaningful access to lecturers and tutors; citations per faculty, which measures university research quality with a citation per faculty metric and includes the total number of academic citations in papers produced by a university in a five-year period.

The other two indicators are international student ratio and international faculty ratio, which demonstrate the ability to attract quality students and staff from across the world.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the U.S. leads the ranking this year, followed by the University of Cambridge in the U.K. and U.S.'s Stanford University.
