QS University Rankings by Region 2016 – Out Now! main image

The QS University Rankings by Region for 2016 are released today, highlighting the top universities in Latin America, Asia, the Arab Region, and Emerging Europe & Central Asia (EECA). They are led, respectively, by Brazil’s Universidade de Sao Paulo, Singapore’s National University of Singapore, Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, and Russia’s Lomonosov Moscow State University.

Several of the tables have been extended this year, now covering the top 300 universities in Latin America, 350 (previously 300) in Asia, 100 in the Arab region, and 200 (previously 150) in the EECA countries.

These regional rankings aim to provide more in-depth comparisons than is possible through the overall QS World University Rankings®, assessing institutions across a larger number of performance indicators.
