USeP one of world-class Philippine universities per QS rankings

The University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP), a state university in Davao City, is one of the 15 Philippine universities that made it to the 2011 list of top Asian universities done by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

In the recent QS rankings released on its official website, USeP is one of the Asian universities that occupied the 201+ ranking. The University ranks top five (5) among the 15 Philippine universities that made it to the list. The Philippine schools that occupied the top four (4) slots are the University of the Philippines; Ateneo de Manila University; De La Salle University; and University of Santo Tomas.

The USeP administration, faculty, staff, and students hail this achievement of the University. Being one among the top Asian universities is already an accomplishment for USeP especially with the number of higher educational institutions in Asia. In the Philippines alone, there are already more than 2,000 universities and colleges. It is also noteworthy that USeP is the only state university (outside of the UP system) and the only school from Mindanao that made it to the top five (5) best schools in the country per QS ranking score.

QS is the world’s leading network for top careers and education. It launched the World University Rankings in 2004, in cooperation with the Times Higher Education Supplement. Among the criteria on which rankings are produced include peer review; recruiter review; international faculty ratio; international student ratio; student-faculty ratio; and citations per faculty.
