Hanoi (VNA) - The UK’s Times Higher Education (THE) has released their latest THE Impact Rankings, with Vietnam’s Ton Duc Thang University named in the world’s top 200 universities in terms of quality education.

Located in Ho Chi Minh City, the university is the sole Vietnamese representative to make the top 200 of THE Impact Rankings 2020 based on its achievements relating to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The board of organisers in charge of devising the rankings carefully calibrated a variety of factors in an attempt to provide both a comprehensive and balanced comparison across three broad areas, namely research, outreach programmes, and stewardship.

The top 200 features an array of famous names such as the University of Sydney, Monash University, and Macquarie University, all of which are based in Australia, whilst the University of Oulu in Finland and the Kyung Hee University of the Republic of Korea also make their names into the list.

Another university of Vietnam – the Hanoi University of Science and Technology - made it into the group ranked from 301st to 400th.

For this year’s THE University Impact Rankings, the list is 300 universities more than that of the 2019 edition, increasing the total number of establishments reviewed to 766 from 85 countries and territories globally.

It assesses the universities based on 17 individual SDGs, including No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-Being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation./.
