EDUCATION | UP makes it to Times Higher Education's World University Rankings 2016-2017

In what may appear to be a reflection of the current state of education in the Philippines, the University of the Philippines (UP) is the sole Philippine university that entered the World University Rankings list of Times Higher Education for the period 2016-2017.

The premier university of the country ranks 801++ in the overall rankings of the London-based publication. However, it failed to join the list of top 200 universities in Asia. The latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) University Rankings for Asia listed UP at rank 70 (same as last year), Ateneo de Manila University at rank 99 (up from 114), De La Salle University (DLSU) at rank 143 (improved from 183), and UST at rank 157 (which went down from 143). The National University of Singapore (NUS) retains its title as the best university in Asia in the latest Times Higher Education's (THE) World University Rankings. NUS is followed by the Nanyang Technological University, Peking University, University of Hong Kong, and Tsinghua University.

Here are the world's best universities according to Times Higher Education for the period 2016 to 2017.

  1. University of Oxford, United Kingdom (up from rank 2)
  2. California Institute of Technology, United States (down from rank 1)
  3. Stanford University, United States
  4. University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
  5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States
  6. Harvard University, United States
  7. Princeton University, United States
  8. Imperial College London, United Kingdom
  9. ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Switzerland
  10. University of California - Berkeley, United States (new entrant, up from rank 13) and University of Chicago, United States
