Universiti Malaya (UM) is the highest rank Malaysian Universiti at 246, followed by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) at 307.

The top 100 sees the number of Asian universities increase to 13 compared to 12 on 2006. At the forefront of Asian universities are the University of Tokyo and the University of Hong Kong at 17th and 18th place respectively. Two Singapore universities managed to remain in the top 100 list - National University of Singapore (NUS) was ranked 33 and Nanyang Techological University (NTU) was at 69.
