THE Asia 2022 ranking dominated by China, 4 Indian universities enter the top 100

Chinese universities have again established themselves as the best higher education institutions in the Asian region. According to the Times Higher Education (THE) rankings, not only are the top two universities in this year’s Asian rankings Chinese for the third consecutive year, but China also has nearly 30 universities listed in the 100 list. Chinese universities in Tsinghua and Beijing are the top two colleges in Asia for the third consecutive year, according to the ranking.

In a sudden surge, Saudi universities outdid themselves and even surpassed some of the best universities in Asia. There are now six Saudi universities in the top 100. Last year, there were four universities in the region. The top-performing institution in Saudi Arabia is King Abdulaziz University, which ranks 28th in the ranking.

Japan, however, has fallen and has six fewer universities in the top 100 compared to 2020. This year, Japan listed eight among the top 100, however, in 2021, as many as 14 Japanese universities were on the listing. Japan, however, remains the most represented nation overall, with 118 institutions in the top 200.

India, on the other hand, remains below China, Japan and Saudi Arabia. Only four Indian universities are in the top 100. There are 17 Indian universities in the top 200 this year. Last year, the number was 18.
