As the era of knowledge economy coming, education contributes a lot to the development of a country. However, the development of higher education in different countries is uneven. For the sake of numeric measurement of the health and sustainability of higher education, we introduce 9 indicators from three aspects primarily, which are based on CIPP model and 3E evaluation system. Furthermore, combining Principal Component Analysis (PCA) with entropy weight method (EWM), the weight of classified subsystems is obtained and the health and sustainability evaluation model was established. Finally, K-means cluster analysis (KCA) is employed to clarify the higher education level of different countries into four: the first echelon, the second echelon, the third echelon and the fourth echelon.
