The National University of Singapore (NUS) has been placed 21st in the 2014 World Reputation Rankings published by the Times Higher Education (THE), up one spot from 22nd place last year. The 2014 reputation rankings are based on the invitation-only survey of academic opinion, featuring 10,536 respondents from 133 countries.
NUS President Professor Tan Chorh Chuan said: “We are pleased that NUS has continued its steady rise in the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings, moving up to 21st in the world. We believe that this reflects the quality of our faculty and students, the innovations in education which we have pursued, our broad-based research strengths and our extensive collaborations with leading overseas universities, local institutions and industry. We will strive to further differentiate ourselves in education, research and its application, and in thought-leadership as a global university centred in Asia.”
The reputation rankings are a subsidiary of the annual THE World University Rankings, published in the second half of the year. The full results of the 2014 THE World Reputation Rankings are available at: http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/world-university-rankings/.
