For any country, the higher education system not only plays an industrial role, but also sends a large number of talents to the country's development. This article is based on this, establishing an evaluation model of the higher education system and formulating an improvement policy. Question one requires us to establish a system that can assess the health of any country's higher education system. We select the gross enrollment rate, the proportion of people receiving higher education, the proportion of higher education expenditure in fiscal expenditure, and the proportion of international students to measure the health of the higher education system. Because each indicator has different impacts, that is, the weight is different, we first use the analytic hierarchy process to calculate the weight of each indicator, then use the TOPSIS method to build an evaluation model, combine the weights, calculate the scores of each country, and determine their health status in turn. Question two requires us to apply the model. We chose the data of the United States, Germany, Japan, Australia, and China to analyze and calculate the score. Since China has the lowest score, we selected China as our improvement target. Finally, we summarized the advantages and disadvantages of this model, and the model can be improved through the disadvantages.
