    UBD jumps in university ranking

    Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) continued to rise up in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings to the 301-350 band. This is the highest placement for UBD since it first entered the THE rankings in 2019.

    UBD also strengthened its position as one of the best ASEAN universities, ranking third in the region behind National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

    According to a press statement, UBD ensures that it stays ahead of strong competition with its growing strength in teaching and research.

    Out of the five pillars used by THE, UBD demonstrated improvements in teaching, research and industry income compared to the previous year. International outlook was the highest ranked pillar, with UBD being placed 163rd in the world. For both international outlook and citations, UBD outperformed 75 per cent of all 1,799 institutions ranked by THE. This fortifies the university’s status as an internationally recognised institution excelling in teaching and research. UBD was also ranked worldwide in several disciplines last year – 201-250 for both engineering and technology as well as social sciences, and 401-500 in physical sciences.

    The university’s latest field-weighted citation impact (FWCI) is 1.43, the highest since 2019. This shows that UBD’s publications currently have 43 per cent more impact than the global average. The increase in citations shows the credibility of UBD researchers as well as the importance and reach of their studies worldwide.

    UBD Vice-Chancellor Dr Hazri bin Haji Kifle was in New York to attend the THE World Academic Summit where the THE World University Rankings were revealed live yesterday.

    As part of the summit, Dr Hazri also attended the Ministerial Colloquium which offered an opportunity for international dialogue on effective national higher education and research strategies. THE’s flagship World Academic Summit 2022 focussed on the theme of trajectories to examine the role of higher education leaders and policymakers in identifying, adapting to and meeting rising expectations for progress.

    In addition to a first look at World University Ranking (WUR) 3.0, the next iteration of the THE World University Rankings, the summit explores new opportunities and collaborations with top-ranked United States universities to enhance teaching and learning, research and innovation.
