NUS has risen four places to be ranked 11th globally in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings 2019. NUS is the best university in Asia and is also placed in the top 1 per cent of the world’s top universities.
In addition, NUS was placed 10th in the latest Reuters Top 75: Asia Pacific’s Most Innovative Universities rankings published earlier this week, the only Singapore university to clinch a spot in the top 10 universities on the prestigious list.
NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye said that the University is pleased to see NUS’ continued recognition as among the world’s leading universities, and in Asia. “NUS has distinguished itself in the area of academic as well as employer reputation, and continues to ramp up its research performance. We are grateful for the excellent work by our very talented community,” he said.
