National University of Singapore is back on Asia’s top

The National University of Singapore (NUS), which lost out to the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in a worldwide ranking last year, has reclaimed its perch as Asia’s top university this year.

In the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings released this morning, NUS climbed from its 15th position last year to 11th this year, dislodging NTU, which moved back one rank to the 12th placing.

Singapore Management University was placed 500th.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology remains the world leader for the seventh consecutive year.

The World University Rankings employs six performance indicators to assess a university’s strengths in research, teaching, employability and internationalisation.

NUS also maintains its position as the 11th in the world for academic reputation.

It is an indicator that is based on the expert opinions of more than 83,000 academics across the world.

It achieved the world’s 18th-best score for employer reputation, which is based on the insights of more than 42,000 employers about the quality of an institution’s graduates.


The future of work in Singapore and around the world is changing rapidly.

More than ever, universities around the world need to bring distinctive value to the communities that we serve.
Meanwhile Hong Kong University of Science and Technology  placed top young university by Times Higher Education.
