One of the measures where UCD improved its performance is staff-student ratio, now a focus of activity at the university. IIT-Guwahati, ranked 491, saw a decline in its ranking since past year when it was placed at 472.

UM also retained its position among the top 20 universities in Asia, according to the QS World University Rankings 2020.

"This is reflected in the increasing research output from the region".

"[This] should be perceived as a sensible strategic decision created to ensure that Cambridge's reputation for outstanding teaching and highly employable graduates continues into the future", Sowter said.

"Sowter added that Cambridge's drop is not necessarily a sign that the university is struggling, as it reflects the fact that it is now spending more on teaching rather than research: "[This] should be perceived as a sensible strategic decision created to ensure that Cambridge's reputation for outstanding teaching and highly employable graduates continues into the future".

With uncertainty around Brexit, universities in the United Kingdom have been falling in rankings for two years. Globally, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Harvard University, University of Oxford and California Institute of Technology have taken the top 5 spots this year. However, their success runs counter to the US's worst-ever overall performance, with just 16% of institutions improving their rank. The university placed 19th in that category.

Most New Zealand universities were suffering from "a long-term real drop in funding per student" as evidenced by all but one local university now having less teaching staff for every student.

Massey University has climbed into the top 300 universities in the world for the first time in a decade.

NTU's launch of the Presidential Post-doctoral Fellows programme last year, which has attracted applications from almost 900 young scholars from top institutions around the world for only 12 positions this year, has also contributed to the university's improved rankings.
