UM'S RANKING IMPROVES TO 230TH POSITION IN THE-QS WORLD UNIVERSITY RANKING 2008
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 9 (Bernama) -- University of Malaya's (UM) ranking improved to 230th position in this year's The Times Higher Education (THE)- Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Ranking from 246th place previously.
Its Acting Vice-Chancellor Datuk Dr Muhamad Rasat Muhamad said the position showed that UM's strategic plan which was implemented two years ago under the leadership of Vice Chancellor Datuk Rafiah Salim and the excellent support of the staff was bearing fruit.
Muhamad Rasat in a statement here today said the university fully supported the Ministry of Higher Education in realising the national aspiration of having one or more of Malaysia's universities in the top 200 of the THE ranking by 2010.
