UP is only PH school in Times Asian rankings
UST last appeared in the survey in 2010
The University of the Philippines (UP) was the only Philippine university that made it in this year’s Times Higher Education (THE) Asian university ranking.
UP earned a spot in the 201-250 bracket alongside Bandung Institute of Technology in Indonesia and Thailand’s Khon Kaen University and Prince of Songkla University.
The National University of Singapore topped again the list, followed by China’s Peking University and Tsinghua University which ranked 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
The rankings are based from the following indicators: teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
UP was also the lone Philippine school in THE’s world university rankings released last year.
UST, Ateneo de Manila University, and De La Salle University last appeared in the survey in 2010.
In the 2010 Asian rankings, UST shared the 101st spot with Japan’s Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology and Thailand’s Prince of Songkla University. Meanwhile, Ateneo, UP and La Salle ranked 58th, 78th, and 106th, respectively.
