The National University of Singapore (NUS) has been placed first in the London-based Times Higher Education Magazine rankings for Asian universities.
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) was placed second alongside Peking University.
Times Higher Education rankings editor Phil Baty said: “Singapore has sealed its place as one of Asia’s top university nations.”
NUS president Tan Chorh Chuan said he was delighted at NUS’ good showing but said NUS will need to be even more strategic and adaptive in the coming years.
The Times ranking uses 13 key performance indicators to reflect a university’s strengths in five areas — teaching, research, citation, industry income and global outlook.
