Worthy of note as well is that UTP has been consistently ranked in the QS and Times Higher Education (THE) rankings which are the top recognised university rankings in the world in helping people decide on the best institutions for their specific field of interest.

Every year QS ranks universities around the world using a methodology that evaluates academic reputation, employer reputation, student-to-faculty ratio, as well as global reputation.

This is the highest place ever achieved by the technical institute in the well-regarded table of the world's top academic institutions.

The rankings cover universities established in the two decades between 1945 and 1967, with 200 institutions from 44 different countries in the mix.

SCU ranked ahead of Australian universities including RMIT, Australian Catholic University and Bond University.

The University of Toronto was again the top ranked Canadian post-secondary institution by QS, followed by McGill (33) and UBC (44) in the top 100.

The QS World University Rankings continue to enjoy a remarkably consistent methodological framework, compiled using six simple metrics that it believes effectively capture university performance, according to the official website. "Certainly the signs of increasing worldwide competitiveness still remain", he said.

"UP Diliman is not only the home of diverse colleges, offering 94 graduate and undergraduate courses, it also runs several centers of research, many of which have been declared by the Commission on Higher Education as National Centers of Excellence", the QS said in its website.

Staff to student ratios, academic reputation and employer reputation are all taken into account.
