The University of the Philippines (UP) followed but dropping to the 1201-1500 bracket from 601-800 last year.

Tsinghua and Peking universities both overtake the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins University and Columbia University to rank 12th and 14th respectively in this year’s ranking.

THE assessed the universities based on 18 calibrated performance indicators, up from the previous 13, that measure an institution’s performance across five areas: teaching, research environment, research quality, industry, and international outlook.

The THE World University Rankings is one of the most authoritative global institutional ranking tables, first released in 2004.
