Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) is still the top school in the Philippines, according to a ranking from a British higher education magazine.

The Times Higher Education (THE)'s World University Rankings 2024 showed ADMU placing 1001-1200, deemed the best among 14 Philippine schools. It, however, is a significant drop from its previous ranking of 351-400.

The University of the Philippines came second with a ranking of 1201-1500. It previously got a ranking of 801-1000.

The University of Santo Tomas (UST), meanwhile, tied with De La Salle University as the third top Philippine school with a ranking of 1501+.

UST had a "reporter" status in the last edition, meaning it provided data to the THE, but didn't meet the ranking eligibility criteria.

Local schools with a reporter status in the 2024 rankings include:

  • Cebu Technological University
  • Central Luzon State University
  • University of Eastern Philippines
  • Mapúa University
  • Mariano Marcos State University
  • Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology
  • Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology
  • University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines
  • Tarlac Agricultural University
  • Visayas State University

The University of Oxford in England topped the THE ranking for the eighth year in a row. Rounding out the Top 5 are the United States' Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, and the University of Cambridge.

Universities were assessed based on five areas: teaching, research environment, research quality, international outlook, and industry.

The 2024 ranking, however, increased performance indicators to 18 from 13 as part of its new methodology.

"This year’s ranking analyzed more than 134 million citations across 16.5 million research publications and included survey responses from 68,402 scholars globally," the THE said. "Overall, we collected 411,789 data points from more than 2,673 institutions that submitted data."

There are a total of 1,904 ranked institutions and 796 universities with "reporter" status in the latest list.
