The University of Hong Kong Excels in the Times Higher Education World University Arts and Humanities’ Subject Rankings 2017-2018

The University of Hong Kong has risen a further two places to 28th in the world in Arts and Humanities in the Times Higher Education World University Subject Rankings 2017-2018, announced on September 13, 2017. This is HKU’s highest placing in the arts and humanities subject rankings since they were first established in 2010-2011. HKU is one of only three Asian universities that made it into the top 30 in this year's exercise which ranked four hundred of the world’s top universities.

While university rankings and league tables vary widely because they each employ different criteria and methodologies, HKU’s presence, once again, amongst the best institutions in the world in this subject is a clear indication of the Faculty of Arts’ commitment to outstanding scholarship, education, and impact on the wider community.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings rely on five categories of activities, including teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook, to compile their rankings. HKU excelled in the international outlook category, with the highest score of all top 100 institutions worldwide for the Arts and Humanities. This result underscores the value of our international collaborations and highlights our ability to attract undergraduates, postgraduates and faculty from all over the world. It reinforces the pivotal part the Faculty of Arts plays in establishing HKU as Asia’s Global University.
