Mahidol University’s ranking this year is at 97th which is the same as last year.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The Asia University Rankings use the same 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.
However, the weightings are specially recalibrated to reflect the priorities of Asian institutions.
Performance indicators are grouped into five areas: teaching (learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research) and industry income (knowledge transfer).
