QS University Rankings by Region 2016: Coming Soon!

By Laura Bridgestock

Updated June 15, 2016 Updated June 15, 2016

This year’s QS University Rankings by Region will be published on 14 June, here on TopUniversities.com. The release will include rankings dedicated to the top universities in Asia, Latin America, the Arab Region, and Emerging Europe & Central Asia (EECA).

With the ranking tables being extended each year to feature more institutions, the 2016 editions will celebrate the leading 350 universities in Asia, 300 in Latin America, 200 in Emerging Europe & Central Asia, and 100 in the Arab Region.

What are the regional rankings?

The rankings for Asia and Latin America are both well established, having been published annually since 2009 and 2011 respectively. Meanwhile the rankings for Emerging Europe & Central Asia and the Arab Region are comparatively new additions to the set; both were first published in 2014.

These regional rankings aim to give greater visibility to universities in regions which are relatively underrepresented in the overall QS World University Rankings®. Each uses a methodology designed to reflect regional priorities and challenges – such as percentage of faculty members with a PhD and online impact. Such additional indicators, which are not assessed in the overall world rankings, allow for more in-depth and meaningful comparisons at regional level.
