UCSI University breaks into the world’s top 265

KUALA LUMPUR: UCSI University climbed 35 spots in the QS World University Rankings 2025 to rank 265th in the world, placing in the world’s top 1% for the third year running.

By doing so, UCSI retains its status as one of Asia’s top private universities in the competitive annual university rankings.

Acknowledging the results, UCSI vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Siti Hamisah Tapsir said the new ranking was a fair reflection of the good work that was taking place at the University.

“UCSI’s 35-spot rise is most encouraging and I would like to thank all UCSI staff and students for their efforts,” she said. “Everyone contributed immensely to the effort.

“This is the third straight year UCSI is ranked in the world’s top 1%. It shows we are moving in the right direction and we will continue focusing on research, teaching, student experiences and graduate outcomes.

“We are cognisant that our true measure of success lies with our students and they are central to everything we do.”

UCSI has nurtured four Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia inductees and an increasing number of its alumni are launching their own social enterprises.

The latest ranking marks a 216-spot climb - an average 36-spot improvement each year - since UCSI was first ranked in the 2019 edition.
