21/06/2016

Editor of Times Higher Education Rankings: "Hebrew University research is pushing the boundaries of knowledge and is being cited globally."

In the 2016 Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings released today, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is ranked #17 in Asia. The Hebrew University moved up 8 spots from #25 last year, to #17 this year. The Hebrew University is also the highest-rated Israeli university in the new Asia University Rankings.   

These are the fourth annual Asia University Rankings, Times Higher Education’s ranking of the top 200 universities in Asia. The full rankings table can be found at https://www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings/2016/regional-ranking.

Phil Baty, Editor of Times Higher Education Rankings, said: “This ranking judges world class universities across their full range of activities — teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook – using Times Higher Education’s trusted, rigorous standards. To emerge as Israel’s number one university and 17th across the entire continent of Asia is a major achievement and something to be celebrated. Hebrew University has shown particular strength in research impact – our analysis demonstrates that its research is pushing the boundaries of knowledge and is being cited globally.”

"The 2016 Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings rank the top 200 universities in Asia, and are based on the same rigorous criteria as the THE World University Rankings – but with special modifications to better reflect the characteristics of Asia’s universities. We judge world class universities employing 13 separate performance indicators across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook," according to Times Higher Education.

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel’s leading academic and research institution, producing one-third of all civilian research in Israel. For more information, visit http://new.huji.ac.il/en.
