In the latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) annual World University Ranking, Nanyang Technological University shares the top spot in Asia together with the National University of Singapore.
NUS is also placed 11th in the world.
The QS rankings employ six performance indicators to assess a university’s strengths in research, teaching, employability and internationalisation.
NTU received higher scores than NUS in faculty-to-student ratio and citations per faculty.
NUS fared very well in the area of employer reputation, which is based on feedback from more than 44,000 employers about the quality of an institution’s graduates.
NUS, NTU and SMU scored full marks for international faculty ratio, which measures the proportion of non-local faculty at an institution.
NTU and NUS said the QS rankings show their efforts in research and education are being recognised.
