In addition to QS, THE, USNEWS, and Shanghai Soft Sciences, there is also a CWUR actual university rankings (Center for World University Rankings). The style of this list is very different, mainly focusing on the evaluation of teaching quality.
So the list doesn’t rely on updated market research or university data to make the list. Instead, it is judged purely by seven objective but powerful indicators.
How pure, this list refers to hardcore academic points, education quality accounted for 25%, alumni employment accounted for 25%, faculty, research results, high-quality publications, influence and citations accounted for 10% each. There are no other bells and whistles, like employers, that can be adjusted.
Therefore, this version of the world university rankings are basically hard-core strength to speak, the list is also particularly biased towards American schools, like the top three schools are basically occupied by American colleges and universities. The Bull Sword doesn’t mix. And the top 10 such good schools are basically from the British and American core schools. Nine years in a row like Harvard.
This list because too touted the United States colleges and universities, after all, the top 12, in addition to Oxbridge mixed in the fourth and fifth, other regions can not be listed. Because it is also too unfriendly to universities in the UK and Australia, relatively few schools cite this list. Popularity and everything has gone straight down.
Why is this list too unfriendly to UK universities?
Because if you refer to this list, there are only nine British colleges and universities in the top 100. Other popular schools we are familiar with are stinking brothers, such as Nan’an, a new online celebrity school, directly to 121, and each list can rub into Glasgow, the top 100 popular school, and awkwardly at 126.
Let’s put down the list of the top 100 on the British side:
According to this list, the gatekeeper school becomes Bristol, ranked 94th, and your G5 school, affectionately known as LSE, is ranked 324th. Proper rubbish school noun. Worse than York’s ranking. At least York is still at 323.
Some of the local popular schools, such as Durham and St.andrews, are almost the same, Duren 329, St. Ann 364. Do you think any school in the UK will quote this list?
No, it is a great insult, after all, not even the top 50 of Manchester are mixed.
The only school that may quote the list is Liverpool, which ranks 134, followed by the University of Nottingham at 135. Liverpool may not have thought that QS was going to ruin him, and updating the 2024 list in August is expected to be out of the top 200. But on this list, the record is very good.
As for the University of Warwick, it is also really miserable, directly dropped to 173, the position is not as solid as Newcastle University.
For British universities, this list has seriously affected school admissions. I feel that this list is arranged with feet, because it does not update the data of the university, but only speaks according to the actual results. This list has been happily sealed over the years.
In addition to the UK sealing the list, Australia has expressed tacit agreement to follow. After all, Australia’s schools are even worse, only two can enter the top 100, and none of the top 50.
The strongest is Melbourne, also in 58th place, and the second strongest is Sydney, straight down to 98. Other eight schools, but also a more than a miserable, and some also directly outside 200.
The specific list is as follows:
Australia’s Big Eight said, “This list is not interesting.” According to the style of QS, Australian schools are now booming, and the number of applications, especially this year, has skyrocketed. Many students who cannot apply for QS thousands of schools are firmly transferred to Australia. After all, Australia has a low threshold, like Sydney, which is basically a double non-score, as long as the score is not less than 85, the basic can go smoothly. The ranking is particularly top, the only regret is that the time has been extended by 0.5-1 year.
And CWUR is going too far. Is Lao Mei a real father? More than half of the top 100 schools on the list are ruled by old American schools, which is playing with it.
To sum up: what do you think of this list? Is it referential, is it unique enough?
Anyway, this world university list as a whole is also a reference value. And relatively more objective, put an end to false behavior. Because the final paper, publication, citation and other comprehensive scientific research can not be false. For some schools with scientific research strength, it is certainly good, but for some professional schools, this list is more poison.
In addition, the top schools in liberal arts and business are nothing on this list, such as the LSE,Durham,St.andrews in the UK and the people’s Congress in China.
PS: What did CWUR send the latest list? Three seconds later, Britain and Australia exited the group chat, swearing.
