At this time of the year, it would be the season for school registration and buying books in the Philippines. I have always been excited with the school opening. After a month, the excitement wanes and how I’d wish for vacation once again 😉 Anyway, here’s something that is about universities…
Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd. has published their list of the “Top 200 Universities in Asia”. The University of Hong Kong topped the list. In the top 10 are 3 universities in Hong Kong, one in Singapore and South Korea and the rest are in Japan. Four universities in the Philippines made it to the top 200 list, namely Ateneo De Manila University (58), University of the Philippines (78), University of Sto. Tomas (101), and Dela Salle University (106).
Forty-two universities in South Korea are in the top 200 list headed by Seoul National University (6), KAIST (13) and Pohang University of Science and Technology (14). The Catholic University of Korea, which has been giving scholarships to Filipinos in their graduate school program, is ranked 95.
Here’s the full list of the top 200 universities in Asia.
