World University Rankings 2018: Two Southeast Asian Universities In Top List

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018 list the top 1,000 universities in the world, making it the biggest international league table to date.

It is the only global university performance table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. They use 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

The calculation of the rankings for 2018 has been subject to independent audit by professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), making these the only global university rankings to be subjected to full, independent scrutiny of this nature.

From the Top 100 list, two Southeast Asian tertiary institutions are spotted. Can you guess from which nation?

Congratulations to these two!
