     The Government is pleased to note that University Grants Committee (UGC)-funded universities have been highly rated in the World University Rankings 2025 published by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), an international higher education organisation. The rankings of six universities have risen, with five of them staying in the world's top 100. 
     A spokesman for the Education Bureau said today (June 5), "UGC-funded universities continue to be highly rated in international rankings, and are among the best in Asia. The ranking results highlight that Hong Kong's universities are highly reputable in the global academic community, with excellent performances in terms of quality of teaching and research, and internationalisation. We are deeply encouraged.
     "The results add confidence and cohesion to the Government's commitment to developing Hong Kong into an international education hub and a cradle of future talent. We will continue to work closely with the higher education sector in capitalising on Hong Kong's strengths to attract more talent from all over the world, broaden the international outlook of local students, nurture diversified talent, enhance Hong Kong's competitiveness, and strengthen Hong Kong's momentum of development as well as contribute to the nation's development."
     The Government will continue to promote the internationalisation and diversification of the higher education sector. Through various key initiatives, the Government will support expansion and quality enhancement of institutions, promote academic exchanges and research collaborations, and promote a more diversified campus culture, so as to enhance the competitiveness of the institutions and students in the globalised environment.
