In October, the UK-based Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) published its yearly ranking of universities in the Asia region.
The Asia edition of the QS World University Rankings listed more than 400 universities. In the categories of International Faculty (percentage of faculty from outside the country) and International Students (ratio of international to domestic students), APU received a full 100 points out of 100 possible.
APU was one of only eight institutions in the region to receive a perfect score in these two categories. The others include: Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), The University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Macau University of Science and Technology, University of Macau, and Al-Madinah International University (Malaysia).
QS University Rankings evaluates universities based on academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, citations per paper, papers per faculty, staff with a PhD, proportion of international faculty, proportion of international students, proportion of inbound exchange students, and proportion of outbound exchange students.
This year, APU was the only Japanese university to receive a perfect score in the International Faculty and International Students categories in the Asia rankings. According to QS, APU ranks within the top 2.5% of universities in Asia overall.
