Three Vietnamese universities remain listed in the annual Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The 2021 list announced on Wednesday has the Vietnam National University (VNU) in Hanoi in the 801-1000 group, and the Vietnam National University in HCMC and Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) the 1001+ group.

The list also ranks schools by the subjects they teach best, which are business and economics, computer science, engineering and technology, life sciences, and physical sciences, for the three Vietnamese universities.

Only three, computer science, engineering and technology and physical sciences, were listed in last year’s rankings.

The subjects added this year, business and economics and life sciences, are taught at the VNU in HCMC.

The VNU in Hanoi has computer science added to the list this year, totaling to three subjects listed: computer science, engineering and technology, and physical sciences. The school’s best subject is engineering and technology, ranked among the 401-500 group.

The HUST has physical sciences as the new addition this year, totaling to three subjects listed: computer science, engineering and technology, and physical sciences. The school’s best subject is also engineering and technology, ranked among the 501-600 group.

The VNU in HCMC has business and life sciences as two new subjects added this year, making the list in all five subjects. The school’s physical sciences subject is ranked among the 801-1000 group, while the other four subjects are placed among the 601+ group.

For this year’s general ranking, the VNU in Hanoi was placed among the rank 801-1000 group, while both the HUST and the VNU in HCMC were placed among the 1001+ group. Compared to last year’s ranking, the HUST dropped about 200 ranks this year, while the other two schools maintain their group positions.

The World University Rankings by THE, a British provider of higher education data, includes more than 1,500 universities across 93 countries and territories this year. Last year, it included more than 1,400 universities across 92 countries and territories.

It ranks schools based on 13 performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The method is slightly adjusted, depending on the subject, for the rankings by subject.
