Two QS-ranked Indonesian universities distinguish TAU as first HEI partner in the Philippines
Progressively realizing its goal to widen global engagement and establish international visibility, the Tarlac Agricultural University (TAU) steered an international partnership development mission in Indonesia to seal the Memorandum of Understanding and Memorandum of Agreement with the Brawijaya University (Universitas Brawijaya/ BU) in Malang and Airlangga University (Universitas Airlangga/ AU) in Surabaya, both renowned HEIs in the said country.
BU, a state university in Malang City, East Java, is one of the leading universities in Indonesia with more than 60,000 students across twelve faculties (colleges). It has been included in the 2016 QS University World (710+) and Asia (30-350) Ranking. On the other hand, AU is the second-oldest university in Indonesia with 15 faculties and more than 35,000 students. Consistently ranked highly in major world university rankings, AU has long been considered as one of the "Big 5" universities in Indonesia. This year, AU ranked 191st in the QS Asian University Ranking and 701+ in the University World Ranking. The same QS Ranking has put into record AU as the best university in "Citations per Paper" category in 2014.
