Its best result in over a decade

9 Jun 2022

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has been placed 38th in the world in the latest prestigious QS World University Rankings.

The rise to 38th place is one higher than last year’s ranking and represents CUHK’s strongest performance in over a decade.

The ranking assessed the performance of over 1,400 universities from around the world. CUHK’s performance places it in the top three percent of universities in the rankings. 

QS analysed institutional performance against academic and employer reputation, faculty to student ratio, citations per faculty, international students and international faculty. CUHK achieved a perfect score in international faculty, and performed very strongly in citations per faculty.

CUHK outperformed the global median results in all fields. Standout results included a 192.7 citation rate per faculty member against a global median of 43.3 and an international faculty ratio of 53.6 compared to a global median of 8.6.

CUHK has seen its ranking improve every year since 2019 and demonstrates an external, independent assessment of its research agenda, student experience and internationalisation endeavours.

CUHK’s Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Rocky S. Tuan said the result is testament to the commitment to excellence across the University community.

“This ranking demonstrates our commitment to academic excellence right across the community. This global assessment provides a strong reference point as we actively progress towards our goal of excellence with purpose and responsibility to the societies we serve here in Hong Kong, nationally and globally”, Professor Tuan said.

“I would like to thank our staff, students, alumni and partners for their hard work and dedication in ensuring that CUHK is synonymous with excellence and we are recognised for our efforts right around the world”.
