JNU ranks 195th among Asian universities and 48th in China in the QS University Rankings: Asia 2016, published on June 14 by the international higher-education information provider Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). In proportion of international students, it ranks 11th in Asia and the first in China.

Pu Ruoqian, director of the Office of International Exchange and Cooperation, explained the university’s performance in each specific indicator used to compile the ranking. The fact that JNU has the largest proportion of international degree students embodies its operational principle “Oriented to students from overseas, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan” and its development strategy “Top university for overseas Chinese.” JNU has also achieved high scores and ranks with three other indicators: staff members with a Ph.D.s, published papers per faculty and proportion of international faculty members. However, JNU still needs to fill large gaps to catch up with top 100 Asian universities.

First published in 2009, QS University Rankings: Asia is considered one of the world’s most influential annual university rankings, along with Times Higher Education World University Rankings and Academic Ranking of World Universities.
