Three Philippine universities have landed in a global list of top universities based on 30 disciplines, with their best performances seen in the English language.

The University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University and De La Salle University belonged to the top 200 in the "QS World University Ranking by Subject 2013."

The list was released by London-based education consultant Quacquarelli Symonds, the same firm which showed Philippine schools slipping down its 2012-2103 general university rankings
Based on subject, however, QS ranked UP and Ateneo as part of the top 51-100 schools for English language and literature. La Salle was in the top 101-150 for the same subject.

Ateneo was also included in the top 151-200 in the global ranking for modern languages. UP was meanwhile in the top 151-200 schools for agriculture and forestry.

The global university rankings by subject is based on assessments of academics and employers of university graduates through a global survey. This year it included 2,858 schools in evaluations but only ranked 678 institutions.

U.S. schools led the rankings in most subjects, with Harvard University topping 10 disciplines. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology was ranked first in seven subjects; the University of California-Berkeley and Oxford University in four subjects; and Cambridge in three subjects.

In the 2012-2013 QS general ranking of universities worldwide, Philippine schools again failed to make it to the top 300.

The University of the Philippines remained the top Filipino school in the list, although slipping to being ranked 348th from 332nd in the previous list.
