The University of Tartu in 2017 has placed 301-350 for the second year in a row in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings published on September 6th, reports LETA/BNS.
Internationally, Mānoa is still ranked in the 201-250 tier.
The University of Sydney came in at 61, the University of Queensland at 65, Monash University at 80 and the University of NSW at 85.
This year too, no Indian university/institute made it to the top global list of 100.
United Kingdom universities – and London universities in particular – continue to thrive in world rankings, but we must not be complacent.
THE World University Ranking focuses on five key areas and 13 performance indicators for ranking: teaching (30%), research (30%), citations (30%), industry income (2.5%) and global outlook (7.5%). See all the Australian rankings here.
This year, even India’s representation also declined, from 31 institutes to only 30 while eight of its universities have slid down to lower rankings. This singularly prominent university excellence listing has ranked Thapar University in the 801-1000 bracket among the 1102 institutions ranked worldwide and 18th among 42 institutions in India. “Meanwhile, nearly all Chinese universities have improved, signalling that the country’s commitments to investment has bolstered results year-on-year”. They use 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.
“As leading universities in other Asian territories such as China, Hong Kong and Singapore are consistently rising up the rankings, in part thanks to high and sustained levels of funding, India’s flagship Indian Institute of Science moves further away from the elite top 200”, Baty said.
