Hong Kong Shue Yan University (HKSYU) has improved its position within the ranks of Asia’s top universities, the university announced. HKSYU is the only private university in Hong Kong to feature in the QS Asia University Rankings 2021.
HKSYU has jumped to 301-350 this year after making its debut at 401-450 last year, thanks to the exceptional quality of the university’s teaching, learning and research.
Asia’s top 634 universities feature in the rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), an international higher education analytics institution. The QS Asia University Rankings examine universities from 18 countries and regions in Asia based on 11 indicators including: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, international research network, citations per paper and papers per faculty.
Dr. Hu Fai-chung, Deputy President of Shue Yan University, said the improved ranking reflected the university’s motto of “cultivating virtues of benevolence”, as upheld by its Founding Principal Dr. Chung Chi-yung and President Dr. Henry Hu Hung-lick.
The Deputy President added: “I am glad to see our persistence in raising teaching quality has been recognised by the international academic community once again, thanks to the continuous efforts of our teachers and students in teaching and research. We will continue to forge ahead and strive for better results.”
In recent years, HKSYU has begun to promote digital humanities, reinventing the University’s liberal arts education through information and digital technology.
“HKSYU will continue to enhance teaching quality so that students can enjoy learning, and conduct more meaningful and influential research projects with a view to contributing to the community. We are optimistic about creating a vibrant scene for students’ learning and the university’s research projects, as information and digital technology are gradually employed in teaching and research,” said Dr Hu.
