Looking around the world, the higher education system has both the value of industry itself and the value of providing well-trained citizens for the national economy. Therefore, the health status of a country's higher education system is of particular importance. We have seen higher education methods in various countries, which have both strengths and weaknesses. Each country needs to think about what is feasible and better in the education system. Therefore, this paper establishes a model that can evaluate the health of the country’s higher education system. Combined with some relevant data on education in recent years, we choose to use the amount of intellectual property rights, the proportion of public education in GDP, the number of universities, and higher education penetration rate and the number of international students as five indicators to assess the health of the education system. Then use the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to obtain the weight of the five indicators through Matlab, namely [0.3542 0.3542 0.1632 0.0800 0.0484], and then obtain the national higher education system score through a series of calculations. In addition, we have also conducted a consistency test to ensure the accuracy of the data.
