HONG KONG, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The University of Hong Kong (HKU) went top again in the Asian University Rankings released Thursday by the Times Higher Education Supplement of the United Kingdom.

Vice-chancellor and President Professor Lap-Chee Tsui of HKU, which became the best university in Asia for the second year in a row, said, "While this is obviously good news for the HKU, it is even more heartening to see that six universities in Hong Kong ranked among the top 50 institutions of higher learning in Asia."

Among the 200 best Asian universities, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology came second, Chinese University of Hong Kong took the forth place. Also included in the ranking include City University of Hong Kong, Polytechnic University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University and Lingnan University of Hong Kong.

"An international element has also factored strongly throughout the different criteria of these rankings, and the results reaffirm our ongoing commitment at HKU to internationalization," Professor Tsui added.

The Asian University Rankings have been compiled by using parameters that are considered to be more appropriate to institutions in this region. These parameters include assessing a combination of regional and international factors, such as peer and recruiter reviews, the international research capabilities of the institution, teaching quality, and internationalization of the staff and students, among others.
