Furthermore, the latest edition also saw  Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) move up into the world’s top 600 for the first time, claiming the second-best rank as a Malaysian university which also makes it the top-ranking private university in Malaysia.



The 2022 rankings which compare over 1,662 institutions across 99 countries from all over the globe looks at the positions of universities across several metrics such as teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook.

It also includes data such as the number of students, international students, the ratio between staff and students and the female to male ratio.

This year, a total of 9 Malaysian universities made it to the top 1,000.


How we compare regionally

Within Southeast Asia, 59 universities from seven ASEAN member countries were included in the rankings. Only universities in Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar were not part of the rankings.



Singapore’s universities had the best rankings regionally and were the only ones to be in the top 50, with the National University of Singapore (NUS) ranking 21 and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) ranking 46.

Whilst Malaysia’s UM ranked third in Southeast Asia in the 301-350 band.
