University of Malaya joins top 50 institutions in Asia

The Asia University Rankings use the same 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

The number of Chinese universities entering the list continued to grow, from 87 a year ago to 101 in 2018, including 39 among the top 100.

"The decline of several Thai universities in the rankings is worrying", said Phil Baty, THE's editorial director of global rankings adding the country needs to drive up research capacity.

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) is at the 29th place while the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Bombay has been placed at the 44th spot.

The University of the Philippines (UP) is the only Philippine university in the Times Higher Education (THE) Asia University Rankings 2018.

California Institute of Technology and Stanford University, last year's second and third top university, are now tied in third place, while Massachusetts Institute of Technology remains in fifth spot.

India claimed 42 places, up from 33 a year ago, with 12 new entrants. It also picked up points in other areas such as research productivity, even though it tends to lag behind on research environment. Another major area of decline in the Indian universities was the teaching reputation.

As in a year ago, 13 performance indicators were used to judge by the Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings 2018 before declaring the result on Tuesday.

The National University of Singapore maintained its streak since 2016 and once again topped the list. However, IISc was India's top ranking institute in the prestigious THE list.

King Mongkut's University of Technology Thon Buri is placed at 114th ranking compared to last year's 101th-110th. According to statistics released by the Chinese Ministry of Education, more than 200,000 students from 64 countries along the Belt and Road Initiative were studying in China a year ago, up 13.6 per cent from 2015.

India remains South Asia's leading higher education country, with 42 representatives. Baty said research must be made the first preference if Pakistan desired its educational institutions to perform better among Asian institutions.

Meanwhile, the National University of Singapore leads the top universities in Asia, followed by China's Tsinghua University and Peking University.
