Chulalongkorn university ranked 252 in Quacquarelli Symonds ltd. report. Mahidol ranked 283 and other Thai universities that ranks within 700 were Chiang Mai, Thammasat, Kasetsart, Khon Kaen, King Mongkut and Prince of Songkhla university.
According to the report the low rankings given to Thai universities is due to struggle of imposing their research on global stage.
In Southeast Asia, Singapore is the only nation with two universities National University of Technology and Nanyang Technological University ranking 12 and 13 respectively.
Thai universities receive less funding from the government as compared to other universities, hence new measures and strategy should be implemented.
