Asia University Rankings 2022

The Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings 2022 use the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings, but they are recalibrated to reflect the attributes of Asia’s institutions.

The universities are judged across all their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook – to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available.

China is home to the continent’s top two universities for the third consecutive year, with Tsinghua and Peking universities holding on to first and second place, respectively.

Meanwhile, Japan is the most-represented nation again this year, with 118 institutions, up from 116 last year. Japan’s performance has not matched last year, however, as it now has only one university in the top 10 compared with two in 2021, and only eight in the top 100, down from 14 in 2020.

Elsewhere, a Palestinian university is ranked for the first time, and Saudi Arabia has increased its representation in the top 100 from four to six institutions.

The 2022 ranking includes 616 universities from 31 territories.
