KUALA LUMPUR: Universiti Malaya (UM) led four other Malaysian universities into the Top 100 Asian Universities list, the first regional ranking issued by The Times Higher Education (THE) Quacquarelli Symonds (Qs).
UM clinched 39th spot. The other four universities were Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (51st), Universiti Sains Malaysia (69th), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (82nd) and Universiti Putra Malaysia (90th).
QS managing director Nunzio Quacquarelli said the result of the QS.com Asian University Rankings was based on regional relevant measures of excellence.
“The top performing universities were distinguished not only by quality but also by high productivity of research, compared to their regional peers,” he said in a statement here yesterday.
He said Malaysian universities performed well, with high numbers of international students and faculties, which made Malaysia an attractive option for international students.
