Lingnan University ranks top 100 Asian university

Lingnan University is ranked one of the top 100 Asian universities, jumping from 109th to 100th in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Asia University Rankings 2018 announced on 16 October.


According to the QS report, Lingnan “performed among the top 24% in the QS Asia University Rankings”, and “considering there are approximately 11,900 universities regionally, this makes Lingnan one of the top 1.0% universities in Asia.”


The University has outstanding performance in the aspects of “international faculty” and “outbound exchange students”, achieving the full scores of 100 and ranking 6th in the region with the strongest “outbound exchange students” indicator. These results are the harvest of the seeds sown in our internationalisation efforts over the years.


Our excellence in teaching and research is also recognised, with the score of 94 for “staff with PhD” and a leap of 140 places in scholars’ citations per paper in the League Table.


At the University’s 50th anniversary of its re-establishment in Hong Kong, we are particularly delighted to see a leap in ranking that puts us in the top 100 Asian universities, an important international recognition of the University’s distinguished liberal arts education following Forbes’ naming it as one of the top 10 liberal arts colleges in Asia in 2015.


“Without the hard work and dedication of all Lingnanians, we would not have come to where we are today. I wish to thank every one of you for your support over the years and trust that we will all work together and continue to excel as a leading Asian liberal arts university with international recognition,” said President Cheng.
