When researching which university to apply to, it can be tricky to find out which institution is the best option for a particular subject. The 2012 rankings of Chinese universities by subject were released by China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) on Jan. 29, 2013. Peking University tops the list for Chinese language and cultural study among the 85 participants in this field, with an overall score of 94.
The evaluation was carried out over the course of one full year and covered 4,235 disciplines across 391 Chinese universities and institutions. Objective indicators and subjective opinions were both included, based on the public data released by government sectors and social institutions, as well as the participants' application materials. The opinions of professionals, government officials and other people from various business circles were also taken into consideration.
This is the third evaluation for particular subjects in the past ten years. The previous ones took place in 2004 and 2008, respectively.
Here are the top ten universities for the study of Chinese language and culture in China, 2012.
