UP slides in rank

Five Philippine universities placed in the top 300 universities in Asia, according to the 2012 rankings of the international research organization Quacquarelli Symmonds Intelligence Unit (QSIU).
 
University of the Philippines Diliman in Quezon City remains the best university in the country as it ranked 68th in the list, followed by the Ateneo de Manila University which ranked 86th.
 
The De La Salle University landed on the 142nd spot while the University of Santo Tomas ranked 148th.
 
The University of Southeastern Philippines in Davao City, which placed 251st to 300th, made it to the list for the first time.
 
The Davao university placed 251st to 300th, with no specific rank, because only the top 150 Asian universities were published in rank order. The next 50 were in ranges of ten while the last 100 universities were in ranges of fifty.
 
The four Philippine universities all dropped from their rankings last year. In 2011, UP ranked 62nd; ADMU, 65th; UST, 104th; and DLSU, 107th.
 
Meanwhile, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology remains on top of the list for two years running.
 
On the other hand, The National University of Singapore, formerly third place in 2011, beats the University of Hong Kong on second place. The University of Hong Kong is now on third place.
 
The Seoul National University ranked fourth followed by the Chinese University of Hong Kong on fifth.
 
According to QSIU, it ranks the universities based on these indicators: 30 percent academic reputation from global survey, 30 percent papers per faculty and citations per paper, 20 percent faculty student ratio, 10 percent employer reputation from global survey, and 10 percent proportion of international faculty and students and proportion of inbound and outbound exchange students.
 
The QSIU has not released its world rankings yet for 2012.
