Again, No Indian University In Top 300

Bennie Garza | 03 September, 2020, 09:25

"We believe that the older IITs non-participation is detrimental to India's position on the world's higher education stage at a time where the government's New Education Policy is being launched and the country clearly looks to internationalize as many of its local neighbours in Asia have already successfully done", THE said in reply to an email query.

Ten other South African universities were included in the rankings, with the University of the Witwatersrand (201-250) and Stellenbosch University (251-300) in second and third place respectively. The country has also doubled its representation in the top 100 since a year ago, gaining three additional places for six in total.

It added that, now more than ever, universities play a critical role as a conduit for learning and innovation - to equip students, industries and countries for a post-coronavirus world.

Of the seven Chinese universities that achieved a top 200 place in 2020, 85 percent improved their position in the latest table, as the universities of the Chinese mainland continue to challenge the world's best.

Waikato and Victoria Universities are stable, both ranked between 501st and 600th. The university is the first institution to have done so under THE's current methodology.

In total, there are 16 Asian universities in the top 100, the highest total for Asia since the rankings began.

Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), New Delhi, has maintained its position in the global rankings and has also improved its rank among Indian Institutions.

Also this year, a record 1,527 institutions qualify for the 2021 edition - that's a 9pc increase from the 2020 rankings when 1,397 institutions qualified. Over the past five years, the USA has lost four positions in the overall top 200, with 63 in 2016 and 59 in 2021, as competition heats up for the top places.

Britain's University of Oxford retained its top spot for the fifth consecutive year.

THE World University Rankings 2021 has considered five parameters for assessing universities: Teaching (30%), Research (30%), Citations (30%), Industry Income (2.5%) and International Outlook (7.5%).

In terms of top 200 representation, the U.S. dominates with 59 institutions on the list, followed by the United Kingdom with 29 institutions, and Germany with 21 institutions.

Time Higher Education chief knowledge officer Phil Baty said the University of Auckland is to be commended for its achievements, particularly given the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

"This trend is likely to accelerate further as the Covid-19 pandemic heralds a ideal storm of huge challenges for primarily Western universities, particularly those in the United States and United Kingdom, who face the very real risk of losing significant worldwide student talent, and the billions of dollars in fees that they bring".

"Excellence in research lies at the heart of our identity as a university and has a fundamental influence on our teaching", she said.

Australia's top university, University of Melbourne, is ranked 31st.
