The people over at Quacquarelli Symonds have done it again, painstakingly sifting through different facets and fields of various universities, before finally assembling a list of the top universities found around Asia for the year of 2018. Want to see where you your university ranked? Well scroll on and find out!
A total 27 universities from Malaysia made the distinguished list, consisting of 16 public and 11 private institutions. As expected, the 5 research universities which have all been making waves by sky-rocketing up numerous rankings make their presence known here, with Universiti Malaya leading the charge at the incredibly respectable position of 24, followed by Universiti Putra Malaysia (36), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (43), Universiti Sains Malaysia (46) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (49). Next though, is a private institution, as Universiti Teknologi Petronas comes agonisingly close to breaking into the top 100, coming up just short at but no less accomplished, at the 101st position.
UTP’s closest competitor on the private institution front would be Taylor’s University, which came in at the 150th position, followed by Multimedia University (179), UCSI University (212), Management and Science University (217), Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (219), Universiti Tenaga Nasional (243), Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (251-260), Sunway University (291-300), Al-Madinah International University (351-400) and Universiti Kuala Lumpur (351-400).
The full table is as follows:
Overall, the list was topped by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) for the first time, usurping the National University of Singapore (NUS), who had to settle for second place. Taking bronze was The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology with South Korea represented by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) which came in fourth. Congratulations to all universities that made the cut, and all the students who now have bragging rights until next year’s list is released.
