Times Higher Education (THE) has released its Asia-Pacific university rankings, and the Philippines only has a sole university making it to the list.
The University of the Philippines (UP) in Diliman, Quezon City is the only Philippine entry in THE’s list which was released on Tuesday; managing to get into the 200+ bracket.
The Asia-Pacific rankings feature over 200 universities from 13 countries.
At the top spot is National University of Singapore, followed by Peking University (China), University of Melbourne (Australia), Tsinghua University (China) and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore).
Japan is the most-represented nation with 69 universities featured, including University of Tokyo at ninth place. Japan’s leading universities remain exceptionally strong, says THE.
Last year, UP Diliman was also the only Philippine representative in THE’s World University Rankings, landing in the 801+ bracket of 980 institutions topped by the United Kingdom’s University of Oxford.
According to THE, the Asia-Pacific region is the most dynamic in the higher education world. In terms of students and research and development activity, it is larger than Europe and the UK, and one day it will become as important as the US and Canada.
