Hebrew University ranked in top 100 universities in world 
Fourth in Asia Pacific Region

September 10, 2007 - The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has been ranked 64th among the world’s 100 top universities in the new Academic Ranking of World Universities issued by Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China.

The Hebrew University was the only Israeli institution included in the top 100.
Topping the list were the American universities Harvard, Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley, and Cambridge University in Britain.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University each year evaluates more than 2,000 universities in the world and ranks the top 500 among them. The rankings are based on a combined scale of academic criteria that include awards won by alumni and staff, articles published in leading scientific journals, and the number of highly cited researchers. The Chinese university’s rankings have achieved respected international recognition.

Other Israeli universities fell into ranking categories below the top 100. Tel Aviv University, the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology were all ranked in the second tier group of universities up to the top 150. Ben-Gurion University was ranked in the category of 200-300, Bar-Ilan University in the category of 300-400, and Haifa University in the category of 400-500.

In the category of the top universities in the Asia Pacific region, the Hebrew University was ranked fourth by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, just after Tokyo and Kyoto universities in Japan and the Australian National University.

Hebrew University President Prof. Menachem Magidor said that the Hebrew University was proud to be ranked 64th among the world’s best universities. “However,” he cautioned, “one cannot ignore the danger inherent in the cuts which have been imposed on higher education in recent years. We can only hope that as a result of the report of the Shohat Commission the funds which have been cut will be restored, otherwise we will not be able to continue to preserve the place of the Hebrew University among the top 100 universities in the world.”
