NUS has climbed three spots to be placed 24th globally in the Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings 2018.
The annual Rankings lists the world’s most prestigious universities, based on academic insights from over 10,000 experienced, published scholars worldwide.
Mr Phil Baty, Editorial Director of Global Rankings at THE, said that NUS has clearly demonstrated distinction across the board — in teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. He added that “scholars around the world are increasingly paying attention to NUS, recognising and reporting its excellence. This should produce a virtuous circle, where excellence drives improved reputation and improved reputation supports excellence — helping to attract more global talent, more prestigious international partnerships and more inward investment.”
NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye said, “NUS is honoured to be placed among the world’s leading universities in the latest Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings 2018. We are also pleased that NUS’ strong reputation for excellence is recognised by leading academics around the world. We remain committed to delivering high-quality education and conducting cutting-edge research in areas of strategic importance to Singapore and the region. The University will continue to nurture future-ready graduates adept to the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, expand our lifelong learning initiatives, and further strengthen the translational impact of our research, to create distinctive value and make a deep and positive impact on the communities we serve.”
Mr Baty also mentioned that THE is thrilled to be gathering the world’s leading scholars and university heads at NUS for the upcoming World Academic Summit in September.
