Why is University Ranking important for UP and Universities?

UP is the only Cambodian university listed in the Times Higher Education (THE). Ranking is essential for the following reasons:

  • To raise and improve the quality of education across the nation and region
  • To inform decision-making for students and parents to choose a top-quality university with high impact degrees – graduates get the best jobs with the highest salaries
  • Creating hope and opportunity for future individual and national development
  • To attract international students and staff mobility to expose them to new international experiences, knowledge and skills
  • To increase MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) to open new opportunities for local Cambodian students and staff to exchange knowledge, skills, and life values
  • To build trust in the nation allowing funding and investment opportunities from governments, donors, or philanthropy to invest in human developments for future socio-economic
  • To build trust for employers with qualified graduates

With its international ranking, the University of Puthisastra builds trust and hope for the nation, region, and global community with concrete knowledge, skills, and values. These play important roles for young generations in bringing positive change to society with the rapid change of industrial 4.0.
