Two Indian Institutes Ranked Among Top 50 Asian Universities

UM places 46th in Times Asia varsity rankings

The ranking of Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU), Islamabad has risen up and it is now among the top 100 varsities of Asia as ranked by the Times Higher Education (THE). However, according to the report, many Indian institutions across the country have registered a decline in ranking.

Both NUS and NTU achieved high scores in all areas of the ranking, in particular on citation impact and global outlook.

Stating that India was still a leading Asia's higher education country, despite many institutions registering a decline, Phil Baty said, "While it has not experienced the same rapid improvement as East Asian nations such as China and while some of its institutions faced declines, India's overall rise proves that it can make advances year on year".

China's Tsinghua University has taken second place, swapping positions with its Beijing rival Peking University, which is third this year.

The National University of Singapore was ranked No. 1 for the third year in a row, while five of the top 10 universities were from China or its special administrative region of Hong Kong.

Significantly, TU is top ranked among all universities in India and ranked 7th in India among all Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs).

While India, Japan, Pakistan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey have all increased their representation, several of their universities have fallen down in the list.

In South Asia, India leads with 42 representatives - up from 33 previous year.

The ranking analysis found that the country's good performance is attributed to points earned in areas of research productivity despite the country's weak research environment.

Other year-on-year country comparisons show contrasting trends. This is result of continuous efforts on the Chinese side bringing its educational level at par with worldwide standard, it was officially stated here on Wednesday.

As for Singapore, the National University of Singapore (NUS) holds onto the overall number one spot after improving its scores in nearly all areas.

Other countries with notable overall score increases are Pakistan, which has seen one of the biggest improvements in average citation impact score since past year, Israel, where research income seems to have been the main driver, and Iran, which has benefited from better research productivity and impact results.
