The top Philippine universities in world university rankings 2022 by Times Higher Education (THE) fell behind, according to results released today, Sept. 2, 2021, on its website.

THE World University Rankings said, “Universities that have published medical sciences research relating to Covid-19 have seen a significant boost in their citation impact,” but unsure if the COVID-19 pandemic would “reshape or entrench existing hierarchies in global higher education,” it furthers.

In the same report, 19 universities increased their scores on citation impact after publishing COVIID-19 related medical papers. Out of these universities, 11 higher education institutions were from mainland China, 1 from Taiwan, and 1 from Hong Kong.

The report also shows mainland China has joined the 5th highest number of universities to make it in the top 200 surpassing Canada and “on par” with the Netherlands.

While both China’s Peking University and Tsinghua University are equally in the 16th rank, the latter (Tsinghua) was ranked 1st in Asia University Rankings 2021 and the former (Peking University) in the 2nd rank.
