QS University Rankings: Asia 2018

QS University Rankings: Asia 2018

Among the top 10 Indian schools, all except IIT Bombay lost their ground.

National University of Singapore (NUS), which occupied the top spot a year ago, has slipped to second position followed by Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. IIT Bombay ranks one in India, with an overall score of 75.7 out of 100.

We all know education is hugely important in Singapore - everyone who has been through the system can attest to surviving all that extra tuition and high-level stress - so it's pretty rewarding to see two of our universities take the top two spots in the recent Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Asia University Rankings.

IIT-Delhi is at 41 rank while IIT-Madras stands at 48.

"I am happy that NTU has contributed to this achievement for Singapore", he said, noting that NTU has risen from No. 14 in 2009, when the QS Asian rankings began. "Among these ten parameters, Employer Reputation indicated the strongest one for IIT Bombay with a rank of 21 globally", the IIT said in a statement.

The Asia University Rankings ranks universities in the regional and world level based on 10 indicators including the academic reputation, employers reputation, student-to-faculty ratio and the PhD qualified staff.

Two universities from Singapore lead the way at the top of this year's Asia University Rankings, with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) pipping last year's number one university - National University of Singapore (NUS) - to first place. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has been ranked third, followed by Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology of South Korea and University of Hong Kong (HKU).

Mr Ben Sowter, research director at QS, said this year's ranking "is a result of the region's universities continually striving to become competitive, forward-thinking, and internationally attractive".
