Only One PH School Makes THE’s List of Top Asian Universities

University of the Philippines ranked in the 201-250 cluster out of 298 Asian universities
By Lorenzo Kyle Subido |

 

 

London-based magazine Times Higher Education (THE) released the list of the top universities in Asia for 2017, and only one Philippine university made the cut: the University of the Philippines (UP). It is the first time a Philippine university is included in the ranking.

 

UP ranked in the 201-250 cluster in THE’s Asia University Rankings for 2017, which gauged Asian universities based on five areas: teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income. “The universities are judged across all of their core missions to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available,” said THE.

 

Topping the list of 298 Asian universities is a fellow Southeast Asian school: the National University of Singapore, which also ranked first in the previous year’s list. Another Singaporean university, the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, ranked fourth. 

 

Peking University came in at number two, while Tsinghua University was at number three. Both schools are in Beijing, China.

 

Twenty-one other universities from Southeast Asia made the list, 10 of which came from Thailand, which saw the most representation among the Southeast Asian countries that made the list. Not far behind is Malaysia with nine universities, while Indonesia grabbed two spots.

 


 

 

Notably, THE identified Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia as countries that “have the potential to follow in the footsteps of Asian higher education powerhouses such as China and South Korea.” It singled out Malaysia as the “emerging university nation in Asia…that has the greatest potential.”

 

The Asia University Rankings has been compiled by THE since 2013. Originally ranking only 100 universities, the list expanded to 200 in 2016 and to 300 in 2017. It is a subset of THE’s global ranking of the world’s universities, where UP ranked in the 801+ bracket.
