Top 200 Universities in Asia

2021 Asian University Ranking New


What are the most popular Universities in Asia? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 Asian University Ranking of the top 200 recognized higher-education institutions in Asia meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Universities in Asia based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
