Studying abroad in Asia can be a very good opportunity for students who are prepared for the challenges.

Top Countries to Study Abroad in Asia

One of the most important things is choosing an educational institute that will fulfil your long term goals. The QS rankings of the top universities of Asia are based on:

  • Academic reputation
  • Employer reputation
  • Citations per paper
  • Faculty/student ratio
  • International faculty
  • International students
  • Inbound exchange students
  • Outbound exchange students
  • Papers per faculty
  • Staff with a Ph.D.

Here are the top Asian universities from this ranking:

  • National University of Singapore
  • The University of Hong Kong
  • The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
  • Nanyan Technology University, Singapore
  • Tsinghua University
  • Seoul National University

Singapore and Hong Kong are the leading countries for English speaking students thinking to study abroad. To study abroad in an Asian country with a strong English presence gives students a soft landing. Those who are more interested to experience a different culture may prefer to study overseas in China.
