Only 4 RP schools among Top 200 Asian universities

KATRINA ELAINE ALBA and KATRINA LOUISE FRANCISCO, GMANews.TV
Article posted May 12, 2009 - 09:50 PM
MANILA, Philippines - Four Philippine schools have made it to the Top 200 Asian Universities list of the Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd. (QS.com) for 2009.

Leading the Philippine schools was the University of the Philippines (UP), which shared No. 63 spot with Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee of India, Osaka City University of Japan and Universitas Gadjah Mada of Indonesia.

De La Salle University (DLSU) was 76th, Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) was 84th, while the University of Santo Tomas (UST) shared 144th spot with Nanjing Agricultural University of China.

Japan had the most number of schools in the list at 58, including 10 in the top 20 ranks.

South Korea was next with 46 universities, of which three were in the top 20, while China had 39, including two in the top 20.

Taiwan had 15; India, 11; Thailand and Indonesia had 8 each; and Malaysia, 6.

Hong Kong also had only six, but four were in the top 20, three of which occupied the 1st, 2nd and 4th slots.

Singapore had only two universities in the list, but both were in the top 20 slots.

Occupying the Top 10 slots were:

1. University of Hong Kong;
2. Chinese University of Hong Kong;
3. University of Tokyo (Japan);
4. Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HK);
5. Kyoto University (Japan);
6. Osaka University (Japan);
7. KAIST - Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (South Korea);
8. Seoul National University, South Korea;
9. Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan);
10. National University of Singapore (NUS) Singapore and Peking University (China).

For the complete list, check http://www.qs.com.

Results of the first QS.com survey was officially released on Tuesday.

Managing Director Nunzio Quacquarelli said the results of the Asian University Rankings focus on regionally relevant measures of excellence, with the top performing universities distinguished not only by quality, but also by high productivity of research, compared to their regional peers.

While the Philippine universities were way below the rankings, QS Managing Director Nunzio Quacquarelli had this to say: “Philippines universities have performed well, with high recruiter review scores. These results make study in the Philippines an attractive option for international students studying abroad,"

Quacquarelli said QS based the first ever top Asian universities list on regionally relevant measures of excellence, selecting schools noted not only for quality, but also for high research productivity compared to the institution’s regional peers.

The ranking of Asian universities used to be done yearly by Asiaweek, a Hong Kong-based English newsmagazine, which folded up in December 2001 due to a downturn in advertising revenues.


Subject rankings

When it came to the 2009 Asian university subject rankings, University of the Philippines (UP) rose to the 12th spot under Arts and Humanities, while ADMU, DSLU, and UST got the 19th, 44th, and 55th slots respectively.

Under Life Sciences and Biomedicine, UP was 47th, ADMU was 52nd, DSLU was 79th, and UST was 85th.

The Social Sciences list placed UP as 22nd, ADMU as 28th, DSLU as 51st, and UST as 75th.

In subjects under Information Technology & Engineering, UP ranked 63rd, ADMU was 64th, and DSLU was 79th.

Under Natural Sciences, ADMU took the 24th spot, UP got the 32nd, UST got the 94th, while DSLU placed 97th.

The THE-QS 2008 world’s top 500 universities rankings had raised eyebrows when ADMU overran other Philippine schools in the top 500 list by rising from somewhere between 401st and 500th in 2007 to 254th, edging out UP which ranked 398th in 2007 and fell to 276th the next year.

DLSU and UST ranked 415th and 470th respectively.

UP officials earlier doubted the survey’s credibility, since the organizers refused to disclose where it acquired the data used, thus making the methodology “problematic."

Officials also revealed the “business side" of the survey where QS sold its various services to help universities improve rankings.

On the other hand, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) refused to comment on the rankings, pointing out that Chairman Emmanuel Angeles, who also presides over the UP Board of Regents, was out of the country.

QS research chief Ben Sowter said “the advantage of regional rankings is in the richer picture we can create when comparing universities at a regional rather than global level, through the inclusion of additional factors."

Sowter added that the shift to a regional focus proved to be significant, “The position of institutions in Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore was to be expected, but the stronger performance of South Korean institutions in contrast to the world rankings suggests a strength known in the region that has yet to be fully acknowledged globally."
