Top Universities in Asia

The best universities in Asia

The University Review Asian Ranking was produced by combining the Shanghai ARWU and US news results; when doing so a bias was given to the ARWU results in order to remove favoritism towards universities that placed on a country specific level (eg. local job market; being the best university in a country not renown for education) as opposed to a continent level.

As always university ranking lists are very subjective and it is important when choosing a place of study to learn as much about an institutions teaching and research of your own subject as much as possible.
