Which city has the most of the 3,000 colleges and universities in the mainland? Beijing is firmly in the first place and Shenzhen is only ranked third from the bottom

According to Ministry of Education statistics, the cities with the largest institutions of higher education are Beijing, Wuhan and Guangzhou in turn, and Beijing, which has the highest number of undergraduates, has also won the first prize, with two or three students divided into Wuhan and Xian. It is worth noting that Shenzhen’s number of high schools is in third place, and that there are only five undergraduate colleges. As a first-line city, there is a huge gap between Shenzhen’s level of higher education and the north. The former WeChat public publication, "National Citizens' Strategy", entitled "Who's the largest city in China's universities" gives data on the number of high schools in every city, the number of undergraduates in every city, the number of university students in every city, etc. Of the total number of higher education institutions throughout the country, 92 in Beijing are in the first, Wuhan and Guangzhou, all 83, followed by Chongqing (70), Zhengzhou (67) and Shanghai (64). It is worth noting that higher education is not too strong in Jeongzhou, which is in the highest number of numbers. According to China’s City Trend, Zhengzhou is not only one of the cities with the largest number of higher education students in the country, but also one of the cities with the largest number of university students, with more than 1 million students in this field, second only to Guangzhou, the country’s second largest. However, Jeongzhou's higher education is highly superior, but not strong. Although Jungzhou has 67 ordinary higher education institutions, there are only 26 undergraduate institutions, accounting for less than 40% of the total, and only one of the two first-class higher education institutions is Jingzhou University.
In Chinese universities, there are public and private institutions, general colleges, adult colleges, undergraduate colleges (Hong Kong generally refers to university degrees) and specialized colleges. Over the general colleges, there are also "two-class universities" which say that two-class universities have replaced the traditional 985 and 211 colleges.
According to the most recent data published by the Ministry of Education, in 2022 there were more than 3,000 higher education institutions throughout the country, and in addition to more than 200 adult higher education institutions, there were 2,759 general higher education institutions, including 1,270 undergraduate colleges and 1,489 higher education institutions.
Qinghua University and Beijing University are highly ranked on the global and national lists.
According to the U.S.E.R., the total number of undergraduate schools is more visible in one place. The top 10 cities in the country are Beijing (67), Wuhan (46), Xian (44), Shanghai (40), and Guangzhou (37).
The cities of Shanghai, Nanjing, Xian, and Xian, apart from Beijing’s long-distance leadership, Wuhan is still ahead, while the number of institutions of higher learning is below the top ten, with less than half the number of undergraduate schools in the former Jeongzhou, Chongqing, and Changsha, with 38.8%, 37.1%, 38.6% respectively. Shenzhen Economically speaking, higher education is still to be developed.
It is worth noting that in some economically strong cities, there are few undergraduate colleges. As a trillion cities, Shenzhen has only five undergraduate colleges, Suzhou has eight such universities, and Sindong-Nam is three, and Foshan is two.
According to Ministry of Education statistics, the number of first-class universities is concentrated in Beijing (34), Shanghai (15), Nanjing (13), Guangzhou (7), and the number of first-class colleges is concentrated in four direct cities, as well as in other major provincial capitals, but the star city of Shenzhen, like Su, Gate, Ningpo, Jinnan and Chengzhou, is surrounded by only one college. At the same time, some of the non-provincial and non-programming cities have hundreds of millions of GDP cities, with two first-class universities missing. For example, in Fushan, Dongjung, Nandong, and Quan states, the economy and the industry are rising in time, and university education is not a daily success.
In addition, the number and strength of higher education institutions in the north-east is much higher than in the emerging economic markets of Shenzhen and Suzhou, owing to the well-known F4 universities (North-East University, Haldian Industrial University, Gilling University and Dalian Polytechnic University), as well as the two-class university lists.
According to the analysis of China's City Trend, higher education institutions tend to gather in traditional regional centres, which are closely linked to the distribution of resources for higher education in different regions of the past, and some of the new cities that have emerged since, like Shenzhen, naturally do not prevail.
Shenzhen University and China Polytechnic went beyond Harvard and ranked third and fourth in the number of patent applications.
According to China's Urban Trends, following the rise of cities such as Shenzhen to open up reforms, economic development is at the top of the list and is not a traditional regional centre. Higher education needs to start from scratch and it is not easy to achieve breakthroughs. As a first-line city, Shenzhen has a huge gap between the level of higher education in Shenzhen and the North, with the Southern University of Technology in 2022 leading to a double zero breakthrough, but still far from the second-line provincial council. In addition, according to the world's four leading rankings, "QS World University, U.S. News World University, World University of Times of Higher Education, World University of Shanghai, World University of Software", all of the four rankings are 100-strong, with only Qinghua and 2 North, with at least 3 world rankings as the basis for the selection process, with 31 high-level schools in the interior added to the rankings. At the same time, there are seven such institutions as Qinghua University, Beijing University, Zhejiang University, Shanghai Transport University, Tandan University, Chinese University of Science and Technology, Nanjing University, etc. All of them, 300 strong, were two higher schools at Wuhan University and Nakayama University, while the Chinese University of Technology was among 200, except for its QS ranking. There are two of the world’s top 500 colleges in Shenzhen.
According to the city, there are six Beijings, five in Shanghai, two in Nanjing, two in Guangzhou, two in Wuhan, two in Tianjin, two in Changsha and two in Shenzhen.
According to the SNIR, Shenzhen is on the list of two universities: the Southern University of Technology and the University of Shenzhen, which are well above the country’s national recognition, may not be without Shenzhen’s economic dominance.
Beijing sits at the Education Center.
According to the Ministry of Education and the International List, Beijing, as the capital of the country, is a national political centre, a cultural centre, a centre for international contacts, and a centre for technological innovation. In the second ranks, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu, and Xian, which are also the traditional 985 high school towns. In the third ranks, with the exception of Changsha, Fatty, Hangzhou, Qingdao, and others, a number of northern cities are well-known: Tianjin, Xianyang, Halding, Changchun, Dalian, etc. There is still room for development in higher education in Shenzhen, a city with a strong economy.
Most provincial capitals are able to join the fourth echelons, serving as provincial administrative, economic, educational, and other centres. The provincial capitals are largely a province-wide pool of resources, with higher education and primary and secondary education at the highest levels in the province.
Economically strong cities such as Shenzhen and Suzhou can be classified as such. Although these regions have little education and few first-class higher education institutions, they are better off in terms of economic growth, wealth, and a lot of money to support higher education.
More than that, close proximity to the place of employment is enough to be a leverage to raise local higher education scores, as in the case of the University of Shenzhen, which has already gone beyond its headquarters in Halcham. According to the analysis, the university level in these economic cities will continue to rise.
