It’s that time of the year again for universities to scale the ladder in the Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings (QS-WUR) 2020.
Here are the Top 10 Malaysian universities ranked in the QS World University Rankings 2018-2020.
Well done to both private and public varsities that have made it to the list!
Local universities have been increasing the number of their research projects at both student and lecturer levels.
This is because QS-WUR has 6 indicators to score a place in their ranks. Among which, 40% from academic reputation, 10% employer reputation, 20% faculty/student ratio, 20% citations per faculty, and 5% for international faculty and international student ratio each.
UCSI has emerged as the best private varsity in Malaysia 2 years consecutively.
Their effort is definitely seen in QS-WUR as they jumped 39 spots to number 442 this year. Especially when they were no where in the list in 2018.
Management and Science University (MSU) also appears to have made it to the list from previously not being ranked in 2019, to being ranked 541-550 in the QS-WUR 2020.
MSU also happens to be trending in Twitterjaya (at the time of writing) as they emerge into the QS-WUR lists.
When the press spoke to the Vice Chancellors of many of the public universities, they revealed that being ranked in the QS-WUR was not by sheer luck.
Earning a spot in the QS-WUR was a combination of setting eyes on the goal and a lot of hard work from all faculty members.
The joy of our Malaysian universities can bee seen on their social media pages today.
We look forward to Malaysia continuing it’s prestigious streak in the academia world.
