We love data. And because we love data we are trying to make interesting infographics describing trends in global education. Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) is an independent organisation specialising in global education. Every year they publish the World University Rankings, a table with the best Universities in the world. We created an infographic that includes data from the latest table and also all the World University Rankings since 2015.
The trends show an increase in quality of higher education in Asia with an increase in the numbers of Universities from Japan and China. China is currently in the 6th place in terms of numbers of Universities appearing in the latest tables and has recently surpassed Australia. While China had only 27 Universities in the tables published in 2015, today there are 40 Chinese Universities in the latest World University Rankings. Japan follows the same trend and since 2014 Japanese Universities appearing in the tables have increased from 37 to 43.
This week Times Higher Education published the 2018 Times Higher Education World University Rankings with the top 1102 Universities in the world. We compared the 2017 and 2018 tables and we made this nice infographic. Enjoy!
