Here are the metrics used to evaluate Asian universities:
- Academic standing.
- Employer standing.
- The faculty-to-student ratio.
- International research collaboration.
- Citations for each paper.
- Papers for each faculty member.
- PhD personnel.
- The percentage of international faculty.
- International student proportion.
- Inbound exchange student proportion.
- Outbound exchange student proportion.
Overall, 760 universities were included in the QS Asia University Rankings 2023, making it the largest Asia University Rankings since its inception in 2019.
