NDO - Ho Chi Minh City-based Ton Duc Thang University is Vietnam’s sole higher education institution to be rated in the 2020 Academic Ranking for World Universities (ARWU).

It placed in the group of 701-800, an improvement from last year’s 901-1000 group.

Several other institutions in the same group with Ton Duc Thang University include Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), the University of Waikato (New Zealand), Chungnam National University (Republic of Korea), City University London (UK) and Université Gustave Eiffel (France).

The top three positions on the 2020 ARWU ranking are Harvard, Stanford and Cambridge, respectively.

ARWU is one of the most influential university rankings in the world, with its league table compiled based on the quality of education, the quality of faculty, research output and per capita performance, whose respective weights are 10%, 40%, 40% and 10%.

It has been publishing the list of the top universities in the world annually since 2003.

Founded in 1997, Ton Duc Thang is a pioneer in the piloting of autonomy for tertiary education institutions in Vietnam.

The university leaders expect that, so long as it maintains its current development path, it will be in the ARWU’s top 500 group in less than three years .
