Reading Time: 1 minute

National University of SingaporeThe 2016 QS University Rankings Asia released on June 14 shows that just five universities in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are ranking among the Top 50, namely two from Singapore, two from Malaysia and one from Thailand.

Although this is an improvement from 2015 when only three ASEAN universities were ranked among the Asia Top 50, it is still a low number given the fact that China (with Hong Kong) occupies 15 ranks in the Top 50, and Japan 11. See the full ranking here.

The list, put together by UK-based education service provider Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) since 2009, ranks universities according to nine indicators, which are academic reputation and employer reputation (based on survey), faculty/students ratio, citation per paper and faculty, number of staff with PhD, proportion of international faculty and students, as well as proportion of inbound and outbound exchange students.

Within the Top 100 universities in Asia, only 14 from ASEAN make it on the list, besides from the above mentioned countries also two each from Indonesia and the Philippines. Others on lower ranks are Universiti Brunei Darussalam (rank 127), Vietnam National University – Hanoi (rank 139) and Vietnam National University – Ho Chi Minh City (rank 147).

Overall, within Asia, the National University of Singapore kept its rank as the best institution of higher learning according to the QS ranking. It is followed by the University of Hong Kong and the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technlogy and China’s Tsinghua University in Beijing.
