According to THE Asia University Ranking 2017, National University of Singapore tops the chart once again. The University earlier grabbed the first rank in the THE Asia 2016 University Ranking. The university is closely followed by Peking University and Tsinghua University, China. Surprisingly, for the first time in three years, Japan has the maximum number of universities approximately 69 universities in the list.

 

The 2016 ranking had 200 universities, which is now expanded to good 300 universities, suggesting that the new listed countries have potential to tread powerhouses like China and Singapore. While, in Southeast Asia ranking list, Thailand makes it to the top with ten universities spearheaded by Mahidol University at 97th position.

 

This year has been a success for Hong Kong, India and China as well. For instance, India has doubled its number of universities this year from 16 to 33 universities, while the numbers of universities from Hong Kong have increased to five in the top 20. Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bengaluru, India has maintained its previous position in Times Higher Education (THE) Asia Rankings 2017
