According to information provided by THE, compared with universities and colleges in other countries and regions participating in the evaluation, Taiwan’s performance is higher than the world average in the two fields of “industry” and “research environment”, but in “teaching” and “research environment”, Taiwan’s performance is higher than the world average. The three areas of “International Outlook” and “Research Quality” are lower than the world average, especially “Research Quality”.
However, due to the changes in the evaluation method of the major indicator “research quality” in this ranking, Taiwan’s universities and colleges have improved their performance in the “research quality” ranking this time than before.
