RANKED: Asia University Rankings 2018

In calculating the top universities in Asia, the Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings 2018 use the same 13 performance indicators as THE's World University Rankings, but they are recalibrated to reflect the attributes of Asia’s institutions.

The universities are judged across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook – to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available.

In this category, the National University of Singapore holds on to the number one spot, for the third year this year, after improving its teaching and research environments, achieving a higher citation impact and securing higher levels of industry income.

Its president, Tan Chorh-Chuan, said that he was “delighted by [this] strong endorsement of the global reputation, high quality and deep impact of NUS’ education and research”.

THE added, In Southeast Asia, Malaysia’s flagship institution, the University of Malaya, joins the top 50 for the first time, and Indonesia has doubled its representation, claiming four spaces in the table, up from two last year.
