NTU climbs to 11th spot in latest QS world university rankings


The meteoric rise of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) in the last five years continues as NTU climbs to 11th place in the latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) global league table of top universities released yesterday. This makes NTU the highest ranked university in Singapore as well as in Asia. The 11th position is NTU’s best performance ever, after it leapt 26 places to 13th place in the world in 2015 and maintained that position last year.
