The Times Higher Education (THE) has announced its annual ranking of the top Japanese universities, and Tohoku University has been ranked first for the third year in a row.
Resources, teaching and learning environment, international orientation of staff and students, research citation and influence, and industry income are among the 16 factors used to establish the rankings.
THE uses “engagement measures” such as student involvement, the interaction between teachers and students, and how well employers regard graduating students when compiling performance data on top universities throughout the world.
Since the rankings began in 2017, Tohoku University has continuously been in the top three of THE’s Japan University listings. It had previously received good marks for its focus on global education, as well as its large number of international staff, students, and research collaborations.
This year, despite the fact that international exchange was severely hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, the university was praised for its student participation and efficient use of resources.
