A bad news for India came recently with no Indian university making its place among top 200 universities of the world, according to the Times Higher Education magazine’s ranking of the world’s top 200 universities.
American universities dominated the list with 7 of its universities making place among top 10. Three British universities, namely, Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London, continue to make the cut with a university in China also making the grade.
According to the rankings of the Times magazine, 75 American universities are among top 200 followed by UK with 32 universities, Germany 12, Netherland 12 and Canada 9.
The top 10 universities among 200 include, California Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Oxford, Princeton University, University of Cambridge, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Imperial College London, University of Chicago and the University of California, Berkeley.
Ann Mroz, editor of Times Higher Education, says, “With as many as seven million students predicted to be studying outside their home country within the next few years, and with international research collaboration at the top of government agendas, these world university rankings are more important than ever.”
Inspite of India claiming to have increased its budget on higher education, India has ailed to make its place in the elite list.
