QS University Rankings 2023: IISc ranked world’s best research varsity, 41 Indian Universities gets featured on a global scale

-By ArdorComm News Network

The QS World University Rankings 2023 include 41 Indian universities, up from 35 last year, including seven new institutes. Bengaluru’s Indian Institute of Science (155th globally) has climbed 31 places since last year to take first place among Indian institutes, with IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi rounding out the top 200.

India has also performed well in research, with IISc ranking first in the world in the ‘citations per faculty’ (CpF) index, which is used by higher education analyst Quacquarelli Symonds to assess the effect of university research. IIT Guwahati (37th for CpF), IIT Roorkee (47th for CpF), and the newly added University of Madras (48th for CpF) are all among the top 50 research universities in the world.

“This edition of the rankings reflects the excellent work that several Indian universities are doing to improve their research footprint, with positive consequences for their reputation on the global stage,” said Ben Sowter, senior vice president at QS. “Conversely, our dataset also suggests that the Indian higher education sector still struggles to provide adequate teaching capacity.”

Twelve of the 41 Indian institutes represented increased their score from the previous year, 12 stayed the same, ten declined, and seven were new entries. The rankings of all of the highlighted Indian Institutes of Technology have improved. IIT Bombay (172nd) improved five spots over previous year, while IIT Delhi (174th) improved 11 places. IIT Madras (250th), IIT Kanpur (264th), and IIT Kharagpur (270th) are in the top 300.

Among the private universities in the country, O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) has secured the 1st rank in India. JGU has been ranked in the 651-700 band this year, making it the only private university from India which has found a place among the world’s Top 700 universities. Followed by this, Manipal Academy of Higher Education has secured the 2nd rank, it has been ranked in the 751-800 band. Shoolini university has been ranked 801-1000 globally, thus securing the 3rd rank among private institutions of India.
