From its previous standing at 801-850 bracket, the University is listed down to 851-900 in the 2025 Quacquarelli-Symonds (QS) World University Rankings released on Wednesday, June 5.

The University has maintained its position from 2018 to 2024 at 801-1000/850 bracket, having its first drop on the 2025 edition.

However, UST still held its fourth rank in the Philippines among the five universities on the list.

UST maintained the first spot in the country for two criteria despite a lower score: international faculty ratio (34.9 from 41.4 in 2024) and international student ratio (5.8 from 8.2 in 2024), and it scored the lowest in citations per faculty at 1.3.

Meanwhile, it secured third place for the faculty-student ratio at 12.5 and maintained the fourth spot on the other remaining criteria, which are the following:

  • academic reputation - 12.28
  • employer reputation - 39.9
  • employment outcomes - 14.1
  • international research network - 18.1
  • sustainability - 2.4

University of the Philippines remained the No. 1 school in the country, with an overall score of 33.3, ranking 336 in the world rankings. They have emerged from their 404th rank during the previous year.

Ateneo de Manila followed at the 516th rank with a 23.6 overall score from their previous 563rd rank.

De La Salle University is the third top-performing school (641-650 bracket), while the University of San Carlos (1401+ bracket) falls behind UST in the country.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recorded an overall score of 100, maintaining its reign as the top-performing university worldwide.

Universities worldwide are rated by the QS World University Rankings based on nine performance indicators: academic reputation (30 percent), citations per faculty (20 percent), employer reputation (15 percent), faculty-student ratio (10 percent), employment outcomes (5 percent), international faculty (5 percent), international research network (5 percent), international students (5 percent), and sustainability (5 percent).
