Australia slips in global university rankings and there is 'cause for concern'

National University of Singapore placed 23rd, the second highest-ranking Asian university, just below China's Tsinghua University. The Indian Institute of Science - in the 251-300 band - continues to retain the lead, but in an impressive debut, IIT Indore becomes India's second highest-ranked university in the 351-400 rankings bracket.

The World University Rankings, which was founded in 2004, is one of the most widely observed rankings for schools around the globe.

NUI Galway has fallen from its place last year between 201st and 250th, to between 301-350th this year.

The Prince of Songkla University, Kasetsart University, Khon Kaen University and King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang have also fared badly, dropping from the 801-1000 to the 1001+ band.

The University of Malaya (UM) is among the top 350 institutions listed in this year's Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, its best showing to date.

Based on THE's criteria, Johns Hopkins ranks No. 12 in the world in research, No. 19 in teaching, No. 23 in citations, No. 38 in industry income, and No. 233 in global outlook. The United States remains the most-represented nation in the table, with 172 institutions, up from 157.

Stanford maintained its position as the highest ranked U.S. institution in 3rd place, alongside Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at 4th, and California Institute of Technology at 5th. Kyoto University jumped nine places to 65th.

Deputy vice-chancellor John Morrow said its rankings had been declining for several years, but that the latest change was significant.

The report said there were signs of trouble in Australia, with many universities losing ground and reputation. The institute was in 126th position in the Asia University ranking 2018.

In total, six Australian institutions feature in the top 100, with the University of Melbourne coming top at 32nd, followed by Australian National University at 49th and University of Sydney at 59th. "The improved score on worldwide outlook underscores UCT as a destination of choice for global students".
