HÀ NỘI — The University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP), a Turkish non-profit organisation, has honoured 17 Vietnamese universities for their outstanding academic performance globally in 2022.
Accordingly, the HCM City-based Tôn Đức Thắng University was ranked 427th, Duy Tân University 446th, Vietnam National University in HCM City 1,013rd, and Vietnam National University in Hà Nội 1,104th.

Notably, Duy Tân and Tôn Đức Thắng universities were named in the top 500 globally.
The URAP ranking system focuses on academic quality. The group gathered data about 3,000 higher education institutes (HEI), covering approximately 12 per cent of all HEIs globally. From the 3,000-plus universities and learning institutions assessed, the ranking is derived based on multiple criteria focusing on academic performance.
The overall score of each HEI is based on its performance over several indicators, including current scientific productivity, research impact, research quality, and international acceptance.
This year, US Harvard University came first in the list, followed by Canada’s Toronto University, England’s University College London, and the US’s Stanford University. —VNS
