Academic Ranking of World Universities (Shanghai)
Is a yearly ranking list published by the Institute of Higher Education at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Initially intended to generate world class Chinese Universities, the list has gained high status among universities around the world.
About the list
The list includes 500 universities. The first 100 are placed in numerical order and 100-200 in blocks of 50. Rankings below 200 are presented in blocks of 100. Large universities with focus on biomedical and natural sciences are favoured over engineering and social sciences. Furthermore, the list is a good tool for measuring the top 50-100 most prestigious universities in the world, but works less well outside this group.
