YN's most prestigious university association

Postby Zhouran » Fri Aug 09, 2019 7:12 pm

Does your nation have any elite university association/group/alliance/consortium? Are there any particular fields YN's elite university association specialize mainly in (eg. STEM, humanities, athletic)?

Examples of IRL elite university consortia

  • Ivy League - US
  • Oxbridge - UK
  • C9 League - China
  • Group of Eight - Australia


The Union of Golden Enlightenment is a league of highly-prestigious Zhouranese universities that was created on November 17, 1908. The group consists of ten elite research-intensive influential universities and is associated with academic excellence, social prestige, and a strong emphasis on research.

Members

- Jiakang University (Putonghua: 贾康) in Ouyang (established on October 13, 1861)

- Kecheng University (Putonghua: 克诚) in Tanzhou (established on December 2, 1861)

- Kenong University (Putonghua: 克农) in Hexie (established on January 9, 1862)

- Ashike University (Putonghua: 阿史克) in Tanzhou (established on June 5, 1865)

- Laixinjue University (Putonghua: 来新觉) in Ouyang (established on April 23, 1864)

- Yansunren University (Putonghua: 颜孙人) in Ouyang (established on May 19, 1867)

- Tanliang University (Putonghua: 谭梁) in Yanjing (established on March 21, 1866)

- Kangrong University (Putonghua: 康融) in Jingnan (established on April 10, 1870)

- Tatagun University (Putonghua: 他塔衮) in Anjing (established on September 15, 1873)

- Shiyan University (Putonghua: 史颜) in Hexie (established on August 19, 1868)


Out of all the universities in Zhouran that are members of the UGE, three of them are part of the Elite University Alliance, which is a league of three world-class highly-prestigious Zhouranese universities. Created on February 5, 1981, it consists of Jiakang University, Kecheng University, and Kenong University.

All of the universities listed above are considered to be Zhouran's most prestigious universities. Members of the UGE are listed in the world's top 20 best-performing universities with the three members of the EUA being in the world's top 10 list. With the UGE and EUA being widely-known internationally as the "Ivy League of Asia" and "Zhouran's Answer to Oxbridge", both are considered to be Asia's leading university alliance with member universities being leading institutions of research in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The average Zhouranese university is known to be of very high quality, rivaling other foreign universities especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. However both the UGE and EUA form the top elite of Zhouranese institutions of research & learning. Every year, Zhouran publishes over a whopping 300,000+ and more scientific papers annually, the highest in the world. Science, technology, engineering and mathematics in Zhouran strongly play an important role in Zhouranese culture, society and identity, having a long history in Zhouran since ancient times and producing numerous significant developments and discoveries in various scientific disciplines. The Zhouranese strongly focus on various fields of science and technology such as physics, mathematics, engineering, chemistry, biology, medical science, astronomy, aeronautics, astronautics, geology, military science, and geography, as well as other disciplines such as mechanical engineering, aerospace, shipbuilding, civil engineering, agronomy, physiology, theoretical nuclear physics, electrical engineering, computer engineering, nuclear technology, military technology, software engineering, mechanics, weapons engineering, mechatronic engineering, communications engineering, photonics, electronic engineering, computer science, materials science and engineering, information systems, information technology, chemical engineering, space engineering, telecommunications, and electro-optics.

With science, engineering and mathematics strongly emphasized academically, the Zhouranese produce important researches, developments and contributions to numerous disciplines. Backed by numerous universities across the nation along with various research institutes in scientific research zones and scientific research clusters (commonly nicknamed "Silicon Forests") as well as having a technical-oriented highly-rigorous and highly-competitive environment, Zhouran leads in the forefront of science and engineering. The uses for scientific knowledge and cutting-edge technology in Zhouran vary, ranging from further innovating fields such as nuclear research and space exploration, to helpful everyday implements such as nanobiotechnology and automated work robots, all the way to military uses such as creating a vast array of highly-sophisticated military equipment.

In Zhouran, the percentage of women studying at university in STEM fields is one of the highest in the world. Not only that, Zhouran also has one of the highest percentage of women studying vocational trade in the world. This isn't surprising since being a meritocratic society that values social mobility and labor participation & social contribution, both men and women are traditionally expected to work and earn money rather than relying on a sole breadwinner.

None officially, but if any college has “Regional” in the name (“blank Regional College” or just “blank Regional”), it’s probably one of the fancier nicer colleges.

There are only three universities in Great Nortend—Aldesey, Limmes and Rhise. All are considered prestigious, although Aldesey is generally considered the most prestigious, as it is the oldest of the three.

There are 2 prestigious university associations, because the prestigious universities in Lansadas are separated from those elsewhere due to the concentration of them.

In the Lansaddian League are:
- The University of Huterrica
- The University of Lansadas
- Lansadas Institute for Science, technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
- University of Hytham

There are 10 universities outside Lansadas in what's called the Watson League.
In the Watson League are:
- The University of Lakeland
- The University of Lajin
- The University of Huswyae (Cleoatt)
- Laclanshire Technical University
- The University of Lunkato
- The University of Hercidon
- The University of Drennpool
- Untrono School for Liberal and Performing Arts
- The University of Ecklin
- The University of Clivewater

All have high student prospects, entry requirements, and level of prestige. Overall, the University of Huterrica is the best performing university in the Huterric Union. However, in terms of student satisfaction, the University of Lajin performs best and the University of Hercidon performs worst, and in terms of subject choice the University of Lakeland has the most extensive course range, whereas Untrono School for Liberal and Performing Arts is heavily restricted in course range.

Rwizikuru has for the longest time only had one university, the University of Rwizikuru in the largest city of Port Fitzhubert. However, since the 1990s, with corruption and what not, most Rwizikurans who can afford will study abroad, usually in Mathrabumi.

This has led to the opening of a campus of the Sirand Technical School (whose main campus is in Mathrabumi) in the second largest city of Chekumabvazuva in 2018, to encourage more Rwizikurans to study in Rwizikuru while still receiving a high-quality Marathi education.

Unsurprisingly, the Sirand University of Chekumabvazuva has become a more prestigious university, and may be likely to displace the University of Rwizikuru as the most prestigious university within a few years or thereabouts.

Nearly every university is tied to the Salamantic Universities, named for the sea Ko-oren is located in. Most universities focus solely on one field (STEM, Humanities, etc) and so the Salamantic Universities are instrumental in bringing different fields together.

The city's only university is the University of Tinhampton, which has such low standards (don't ask us how or why) that it is widely regarded as being Quite Shitty.
