Five Hong Kong universities are included in the top 100 higher education institutes in the QS World University Rankings for 2024.

The University of Hong Kong (No. 26), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (No. 47), the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (No. 60), Hong Kong Polytechnic University (No. 65), and City University (No. 70) are in the 12th edition of the list announced earlier this week.

Hong Kong Universities in the QS World University Rankings for 2024

In addition, Baptist University ranked at No. 295, and Lingnan University was among the 641-650 list.

However, of the seven SAR institutes featured in the list, six of them slid down the rankings, with only Hong Kong Polytechnic University holding on to its position from 2023.

Britain-based education information firm, Quacquarelli Symonds – which runs the survey of 1,500 tertiary institutes from around the world – said this drop in rankings was because of a lack of international collaboration in research and a dip in employer reputation.

“In international research network, no Hong Kong universities are among the world’s top 300. For employer reputation, the top performer is HKU which places 159th,” said QS officials.

However, several of the city’s university’s are still among Asia’s best. Last week, five SAR tertiary institutes were included in the top 20 list of the Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings for 2023.
