Five other Philippine universities made it to the list with a “reporter” status — meaning they participated in the rankings for the first time but were not yet ranked:

  • Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology
  • Tarlac Agricultural University
  • University of Santo Tomas
  • University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines
  • Visayas State University

According to CHEd, said 526 universities are listed with “reporter” status.

CHEd Chair Prospero De Vera said that more higher education institutions in the Philippines had been getting more “globally competitive and world-class.”

“The dramatic increase in the number of internationalized Philippines HEIs shows that our universities continuously benchmark themselves with the best universities in the world and are improving their programs, faculty, and facilities to produce graduates that are globally competitive and industry-matched,” De Vera said.

The Time Higher Education list is one of the most definitive lists of world’s best research-led institutions, according to CHEd.

“The insights and data curated from this list have been adopted as a geo-political indicator as well as an aid to strategic management of institutions and a crucial factor in the study choices made by millions of students around the world and their employment prospects,” CHEd said.
