The 2011 QS Asian University Rankings(TM) show that Hong Kong'suniversities still lead the way despite massive investment from China, Japan, Korea and India. HKUST has underlined its ambitious development by narrowly overtaking HKU to top the table, while Chinese University of Hong Kongretains its place in the top five.

"Both HKUST and HKU are strong across most of the indicators, with their truly international character setting them apart," says Ben Sowter, head of QS Intelligence Unit. "HKUST has the edge in research productivity, where the gap has widened in 2011."

Despite the troubled Japanese economy, its universities continue to perform strongly. Tokyo and Kyoto each move up one place to 4th and 7th respectively.

In Singapore, NUS retains its place in the top three and NTU consolidates its strong 2010 performance, moving up one place to 17th.

Mainland China's universities perform strongly in the reputation indicators, with Peking and Tsinghua both rated in the top seven by academics, and third and fourth by employers.

Two more Indian universities make the top 50 than in 2010, with IIT Kanpur (36) overtaking IIT Bombay, which drops two places to 38. Government investment has increased research productivity, but low scores for citations suggest Indian research is not yet as influential as that of other leading Asian countries. Six out of seven Malaysian universities have improved on their 2010 ranking, with UM rising three places to 39th and UPM up 20 places to 57th.

The dynamism of the region is confirmed by the fact that 20% of the top 50 universities are less than 50 years old, including HKUST which has just celebrated its twentieth anniversary.
