Local heroes in regional ranking

Times Higher Education has released its 2019 Asia-Pacific university ranking, with results pretty much in the same order as the global one. Tsinghua University in China moves up one position to be first in the region (22 in the world), replacing the National University of Singapore which drops to two in the region and 23 on the big-list.

The top Australian ten in the Asia-Pacific are Uni Melbourne (3, on the regional list, up one place and equal 32 in the word), ANU (8,unchanged and 49), Uni Sydney (11, unchanged and =59), Uni Queensland (12, down 3 and 69), Monash U (15, down 2, =84), UNSW (=19, down 4 and =96), Uni Adelaide (23, down 1 and =135), UWA ( 24, down 5, 134), UTS (29, up 2, 196) and QUT (33, down 2, 201-250 band).

THE says the ranking uses “the same performance indicators” as the global list, with weightings “adjusted to reflect the younger profile of some of the universities in the region.”
