With a 1501+ bracket, the University shares its new ranking alongside De La Salle University according to the 2024 World University Rankings list released on Wednesday, September 27.

After Times Higher Education (THE) granted the University of Santo Tomas a “reporter” status due to insufficient published research outputs in 2018, the University snagged the third place among all Philippine education institutions.

UST was assessed based on five areas and obtained the following scores: 25.8 points in research quality, 20.7 points in industry criteria, 19.6 points in teaching, and 9.5 points in research environment.

From the previous 10 in the 2023 iteration, the number of schools on the list jumped to 14.

The Ateneo de Manila University remained the top university but slipped from the 351-400 to 1,001-1,200 bracket.

The University of the Philippines retained second place, dipping from 801-1,100 to 1,201-1,500. Mapua University’s ranking was downgraded to reporter status from 1,501+ ranking last 2023 edition.

THE adopted a new methodology, adding five performance indicators from the previous 13 indicators, which define indicators of tweaking citations to research quality to encapsulate excellence, influence, number of patents, and research strength.

The 2024 edition highlights its score in the international outlook category of 67 as the strongest indicator for the university to be one of the outstanding schools in the country.

Times Higher Education defined its list by ranking universities based on their performance in environment (29 percent), research quality (30 percent), teaching (29.5 percent), industry (4 percent), and international outlook (7.5 percent).

University of Oxford has been hailed as the top university worldwide for eight years in THE list.

A total of 1,904 universities in 108 countries underwent the Times Higher Education list, and 769 universities were tagged with reporter statuses.
