According to the latest Times Higher Education rankings, the National University of Singapore has retained its position as the world’s 25th best university and third in Asia.
Nanyang Technological University moved up one place to the 47th position this year.
Times Higher Education assesses universities on 13 performance indicators which are grouped into five areas: teaching, research, citations, international outlook, and industry income.
NUS said it was heartened to be ranked among the leading universities in the world and Asia.
NTU said the Times Higher Education ranking is yet another indicator of its continued upward trajectory in all the major global educational indices.
Educators and university administrators have long argued that these university rankings should be halted, and effort spent instead on supporting struggling students and academics.
