The QS rankings are based on the expert opinion of 83,877 academics and 42,862 employers, in addition to the analysis of 13 million papers and 67 million citations to measure the impact of the research produced by the universities ranked.

Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) has made top 1% of world's best universities due to the tireless work of all its employees, MSU rector Viktor Sadovnichiy commented on the results of the newly published QS World University Rankings.

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

Ben Sowter, Research Director at QS said: "Malaysia shines in this edition of the rankings".
