1. CUAA Top 10 Chinese Universities for Undergraduate Majors

The Chinese Universities Alumni Association (CUAA) released the 2015 edition of Chinese University Undergraduate Major Evaluation Report on May 18, 2015. Before the advent of the national college entrance exam, Chinese university rankings can offer authoritative advice for exam candidates in choosing a suitable university.

Peking University ranks first, with 34 six-star majors and 23 five-star majors and Tsinghua University follows it, with 32 six-star majors and 18 five-star majors.

The CUAA adopts a star rating system that ranges from one star (the lowest) to eight stars (the highest) when evaluating undergraduate majors in four basic dimensions--overall strengths, operation level, teaching quality and educational features.

Currently, the six-star majors represent the highest standard in China’s undergraduate education system. Majors in this category lead in academic level, international influence, the number of outstanding graduates and so on.

The report indicated that those two universities are still the best higher education institutions in China.

The CUAA research team has focused on the university rankings and entrepreneurship for 28 years, making use of third party authoritative official figures. The rankings released by the organization have drawn great attention in past years.
