The National University of Singapore and the Nanyang Technological University have been named Asia’s best universities in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) annual higher education ranking.
Globally, NUS has come in 11th, while NTU was placed 12th in a league table comparing 1,300 universities.
NUS has also held the No. 1 position among Asian universities for the past four years.
QS evaluated the institutions on six indicators: academic reputation, reputation among employers, citations per faculty member, faculty to student ratio, ratio of international faculty members and ratio of international students.
In a separate list released by Times Higher Education last week, NTU ranked fifth in Asia, up from sixth last year, while NUS maintained its third place.
