Universities from mainland China broke into the global top 100 in an annual ranking for the first time on Monday, according to the South China Morning Post. China’s prestigious Tsinghua University was 58th, beating elite Peking University into 71st place in the “Academic Ranking of World Universities” compiled by the independent Shanghai Ranking Consultancy. The National University of Singapore also entered the top 100 for the first time, tying for 83rd, it said. Harvard remained number one for the 14th consecutive year. The Shanghai Ranking is consistently largely static at its top levels and this year nine of the top 20 were in unchanged positions and another nine moved by only one place.
