The Republic's universities are getting more global recognition, with both the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Nanyang Techonological University (NTU) climbing up the ranking charts. NUS has been placed 25th in the 2012/2013 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings, up three spots from its 28th placing last year. Although NUS was consistent in improving in almost all the indicators measured by QS, the university has done particularly well in certain areas. For instance, it was placed 9th in the world for academic reputation, and 14th for employer reputation. NUS also did well in the number of research papers published and citations generated. "We are pleased to be ranked once again among the very best universities in the world and in Asia. We are also delighted to be recognized for our high quality education and world-class research. This is a strong indication that our bold enhancements to education and research are creating a positive impact," NUS president Tan Chorh Chuan said. NTU rose to the 47th spot in this year's rankings, up from 58th position last year. The university's rise up the QS rankings has been spectacular as it jumped 11 places this year and 16 last year to become the fastest-rising university in the top 50.
