More Indian institutes in list, but IISc slips in global rank

Times Higher Education, which considers nearly 1,400 universities across 92 countries, stands as the largest and most diverse higher education ranking to date. Six universities are included in this year's top 500 in THE World University Rankings 2020, a step-up in comparison to last year's five universities.

For the first time since 2012, India does not have any entry in the top 300 in World University Rankings 2020, published by UK-based Times Higher Education, (THE) which has a global ranking system of 1,300 universities in 92 countries, reports Live Mint.

The number one position has been retained by Oxford University, while this year's second position has been grabbed by the California Institute of Technology. According to the U.S. Department of Education, there are more than 4,000 four-year universities in the country.

THE assessed nearly 1400 universities in 92 countries on teaching, research, knowledge transfer and worldwide outlook.

The global rank of IISc, country's premiere research institute, has declined to 301-350 from 251-300. As per the new ranking, the gap between the top educational and research institutes of the country and their global contemporaries has widened.

Ellie Bothwell, THE rankings editor, said: "India has a huge amount of potential in global higher education, given its rapidly growing youth population and economy and use of English-language instruction".

As per the ranking survey, Indian institutions have been lagging in their global outlook, a prickly issue for the higher education sector in the country despite its ambition to become a study-abroad destination for low income and developing countries. The high point for India was Indian Institute of Technology, Ropar making it to the top 350 on debut in the list.
