THE annual rankings of more than 350 universities in Asia were announced at the Asia Universities Summit held at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) on Tuesday night.

The National University of Singapore is Asia’s top university for the third year in a row, according to Times Higher Education’s annual rankings of the region.

Meanwhile, Tsinghua University has overtaken Peking University to become the top Chinese mainland institution on the table for the first time in the rankings’ six-year history. Tsinghua University has a much stronger publication output than Peking University and increased its research income at a faster rate than its Beijing rival, according to the results.

Overall, the Chinese mainland has 63 universities in the rankings, many of which have made progress this year, including several of its lower-ranked institutions.

Duncan Ross with Times Higher Education analyzed yesterday that Chinese mainland universities might be on the rise against other institutions in the Far East as the government is attaching greater value onto and making more investment into universities.

He forecasted that Chinese mainland universities, especially newly opened higher education institutions, will achieve higher rankings in the coming years.

Japan is once again the most-represented nation in the list, boasting 89 universities. There is also success for Hong Kong, which has three universities in the top 10, more than any other territory, and six universities in the top 60.

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.

The three-day summit commenced Monday at the SUSTech with dozens of presidents from the world’s leading universities gathered, sharing their insights into the development of Asia’s universities.
