The latest edition of the QS World University Rankings was released on June 19, which included 12 Chinese academic institutions in the top 100 schools worldwide.

Tsinghua University in Beijing climbed one spot from last year’s list, making it the 16th ranked university globally. Peking University also jumped eight spots, making it the 22nd ranked university. 

According to China Daily, the recent rankings are a clear indication of “sustained improvement throughout China’s higher learning institutions.” In 2017, the capital city listed 42 universities that are pushing to achieve world-class status in the hopes of making China an international higher education power.

Following Tsinghua and Peiking Universities, Fudan University (#40), Zhejiang University (#54), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (#60) and University of Science and Technology of China (#89) round out China’s schools in the top 100.

Six Chinese mainland universities made the top 100, while five Hong Kong universities and one Taiwan university also made the list.

The QS World University Rankings, made by London-based higher education analysts QS Quacquarelli Symonds, dates back to 2004.
