Times Higher Education announces Asia University Rankings 2022

Times Higher Education

Nagoya, Japan, June 01, 2022 — Times Higher Education has published its Asia University Rankings 2022, revealing the top institutions across the diverse and dynamic continent.

There are now six Saudi Arabian universities in the top 100, up from four last year, and four in the top 50, double the number in 2021.

The best-performing institution in Saudi Arabia is King Abdulaziz University, which ranks 28. The public university in Jeddah was established in 1967 by business people before being converted to a public institution seven years later. It scores especially highly for international collaboration (93.6 out of 100) and citations (92.4).

King Abdulaziz University ranks joint 190th in THE’s World University Rankings 2022; the results, published last year, marked the first time a university from Saudi Arabia got included in the top 200.

Overall, there are 15 Saudi universities in the Asia rankings, up from 10 in 2021 and seven in 2020.

Following King Abdulaziz is Alfaisal University in 34th position. The private, not-for-profit institution is in Riyadh.

King Saud University, a public institution in Riyadh, ranks joint 44th, up from 53rd last year. King Saud was the first Saudi university established in 1957 and was initially named Riyadh University.

King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals also ranks among the top 50, at 48th position, up from joint 84th last year.

Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s national strategy introduced by Mohammed bin Salman in 2016, includes a target of at least five Saudi universities ranking among the top 200 in international rankings. The plan aims to move the Saudi economy from an over-reliance on oil revenues to a more balanced financial model in which higher education is integral.

China still leads the Asia rankings, with Tsinghua and Peking universities taking the top two spots for the third consecutive year. The country has secured its dominance in the region, being home to nearly a third of institutions (30) in the top 100.

In contrast, Japan has six fewer universities in the top 100 than in 2020, with just eight, down from 14. However, it is still the most-represented nation overall, with 118 institutions.

The Asia University Rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the World University Rankings, but they are recalibrated to reflect the attributes of Asia’s institutions.
