Times Higher Education has launched its first Asia-Pacific University Ranking 2017 to showcase the region’s growth in the higher education sector.

Analysing universities across 38 nations in East Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania, the overall ranking features just over 200 universities from 13 different nations. Diving into Malaysia, the three local universities that made into the top 150 included Universiti Putra Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi Petronas.

Meanwhile, Japan is the most-represented nation with 69 universities featured. China is in second place with 52 universities, while other countries with a strong presence in the ranking include Australia (35 universities), Taiwan (26), South Korea (25) and Thailand (nine).

Although this list uses the same performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings 2016-17, the weightings were adjusted to reflect the younger profile of some of the universities in the region.
