According to the Asia University Rankings 2014, published recently by Times Higher Education, when it comes to the nation with the most institutions in the running, Taiwan fell from second to fourth place. National Taiwan University (NTU) is still Taiwan's leading institution and took 14th place, remaining in the same position as last year.

The editor of Times Higher Education Pill Baty pointed out that “the NTU has experienced a very slight decline in its scores for teaching and research this year, but has overall remained stable.

“You have to run very fast just to stand in this highly competitive environment, so National Taiwan University's performance is a significant achievement, as universities across the region are improving,” said Baty.

However, Taiwan cannot be satisfied with the achievement that one school has made it into the international university rankings because there is no university in Taiwan that made into the top 10. Also, four Taiwanese universities lost their spot this year, which is something that we cannot overlook.

The rankings pointed out one significant issue that Taiwan's higher education is facing, which is that we are not improving while others are. Indeed, we are moving backwards. When most Asian countries, including Japan, South Korea and Singapore, are maintaining their leading status or are soaring up in international rankings of advanced education, Taiwan seems to stay in the same place where it was years ago. When other countries are moving forward, Taiwan, however, is left behind.
