NTU Rises by 3 Places to 66th in 2021 QS World University Rankings

Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) released the 2021 QS World University Rankings on June 10, 2020. In the rankings of this year, NTU rose by three places from 69th to 66th, the best ranking so far, remaining the only university in Taiwan to be listed among the world’s top 100 universities.

The six metrics used in the survey were academic reputation (40%), employer reputation (10%), citations per faculty (20%), faculty/student ratio (20%), international faculty ratio (5%), and international student ratio (5). The ranking methodology remained unchanged compared with last year. Among the retrieved 1.6 million questionnaires on academic reputation and 310 thousand questionnaires on employer reputation, QS adopted 102,500 and 52,000 responses for the two metrics, respectively. This year, 1,002 out of the 1,604 institutions under evaluation made it to the final list of the 2021 QS World University Rankins, and a total of 16 Taiwanese universities entered the top 1,000.

NTU boasts excellent faculty and R&D capacity. Besides outstanding performance in world rankings, the university has actively promoted internationalization and teaching/learning innovation to nurture talents and boost R&D capacity. By continuing to implement the Higher Education Sprout Project, NTU has been improving teaching quality, developing interdisciplinary research strengths, reinforcing R&D innovations, and advancing internationalization and research collaborations, to constantly increase NTU’s visibility and influence in the international academic community.
