more commonly heard of / reputable Unis in ARWU ranking

Postby tanbh » Wed Sep 08, 2010 4:42 pm

Dear all
Here is a list that includes only some of the more commonly heard of Universities with some prestige that we Singaporeans may have heard of [majority from English speaking countries starting from rank of 20 and above but also including some from Asia/Europe] …. The more reputable ones so that we know how they stand relative to one another.

Hope that parents or students understand that we have to see things in perspective: while more US Universities are in top 500 ranking, it DEFINITELY does NOT mean ANY USA UNIVERSITIES will out do/out perform universities from other countries like UK, Australia, Canadian, S’pore. E.g. U of Leeds (UK), U of Western Australia i.e. UWA (Australia) and NUS out rank Dartmouth College of USA … one of US’s Ivy League colleges (albeit smaller of the Ivy League)

NOTE: I personally feel that ‘Government link universities’ like NUS, Australian National University (ANU) and NTU (NTU is outside top 300) have UNFAIR advantage over then rest because they receive more government related projects in research, more direct investment and help in terms of funds, staff and resources etc… hence I SUBJECTIVELY feel that these Universities should be ranked around 50 positions lower than where they are currently placed

Rank Name
20 Tokyo U (Japan)
21 University College London (UK)
25 U of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (USA)
26 Imperial College (UK)
46 U of Southern California (USA)

59 ANU - Australian. Nat’l Univ (AUS)
61 McGill (Canada)
62 U of Melbourne (AUS)
63 Kings College London (UK)
65 Brown U (USA)
66 Uppsala U (Sweden)
92 U of Sydney (AUS)
96 U of Virginia (USA)
99 Birmingham U (UK) / Rice U (USA)

101- 150 Range
Emory U (USA), NUS (S’pore), U of Queensland (Australia), U of Western Australia (AUS), U of Leeds (UK)

151 – 200 Range
Dartmouth (USA), Iowa State (USA), Warwick (UK), Mount Sinai Sch of Med. (USA), Monash (AUS), Peking U (PRC), Chinese U of Hong Kong (Hong Kong, PRC), Tsinghua (PRC),
U of New South Wales (AUS), Durham (UK)

300 -400 range
Georgetown U (USA), Tulane U (USA), Syracuse (USA), San Diego State U (USA), NTU (S’pore), Waseda U (Japan), U of Dundee (UK), U of Bath (UK), U of Newcastle (AUS), City U of Hong Kong (HK,PRC), Flinders U (AUS), James Cook (AUS), U of Rhode Island (USA), U of Exeter (UK)

why british's THE / 'THE-QS' ranking is flawed

Postby tanbh » Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:13 pm

some links to discuss why the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking have many flaws and should not be used as a good indicator of universities' actual standing in the world

the SHJT-ARWU ranking started unofficially in 1998 or 1999 but almost every year.... not many UK universities are ranked in the SHJT-ARWU ranking in top 50 and even lesser in top 20.... thats is a probable reason why THE and the british started the THE ranking.... somehow "bizarrely" in THE , those from Commomwealth nations like UK,Australia and S'pore ALL did AMAZINGLY MUCH better relatively to their USA counterpart when compare with ARWU ... much more UK and non USA universities showed up in top 50 and top100 of the THE or THE-QS rankings : mostly due to some PEER REVIEWS and "subjective surveys" that somehow skew the results positively for UK and those NON USA universities... including Local Unis like NUS and NTU....
