MANILA, Philippines — Two universities from the Philippines — University of the Philippines and De La Salle University — entered this year's list of best universities in the Asia-Pacific region, according to London-based Times Higher Education (THE).

In September last year, DLSU joined UP in the 2018 THE World University Rankings.

The Asia-Pacific University Ranking 2019 ranked more than 300 universities from 13 countries across East Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania.

UP, the country's premier state university, ranked 101st to 110th, a jump from its 151st to 160th ranking last year. The university's overall world ranking is at 501st to 600th.

DLSU, on the other hand, ranked 201st to 250th while its overall ranking is at 801st to 1000th.

The regional rankings released February 20 used the same performance indicators as the world rankings but it has been adjusted to "reflect the younger profile of some of the universities in the region."

The rankings were based on performance indicators grouped into five areas — teaching (learning environment), research (volume, income and reputation), citations (research influence), international outlook (staff, students and research) and industry income (knowledge transfer).

China's Tsinghua University remains the top university in the region, followed by National University of Singapore, University of Melbourne, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and University of Hong Kong.

Also in the top 10 are Peking University (China), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), Australian National University, Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Tokyo (Japan).

In the Asia-Pacific region, Japan is the most represented nation with 103 universities in the list, followed by China with 72 universities, Australia with 35, Taiwan with 32, South Korea with 29 and Thailand with 14.
