World University Rankings 2020 Indian Universities Fail to Feature in List of Top 300

This year's Times Higher Education World University Rankings show Japan's increased presence in the listing of universities from 92 countries and regions, with 110 institutions now represented, up from 103 last year. After the top 200 ranks, THE puts universities in ranking groups.

In total, there are six Indian universities in the top 500 in this year's Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2020 as against five in the 2019 rankings.

The University of Oxford retained the top spot for the fourth consecutive year, while the California Institute of Technology rose from fifth to the second position.

The University of Auckland has again been ranked number 1 in New Zealand.

There are approximately 4,000 global research institutions, according to Essential Science Indicators, and at least 26,000 universities in the world, according to the Webometrics ranking system.

The fall of IISc from the 251-300 to 301-350 cohort this year is attributed to a significant dip in its citation impact score offsetting improvements in research environment, teaching environment and industry income.

More Indian education institutions figured in the latest global ranking released on Wednesday, but the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), which was the only Indian entry in the top 300 previous year, slipped into the 301-350 group due to a "significant fall" in its research citation impact.

It is also necessary that the planet has an atmosphere to protect the planet from any harmful radiation coming from its host star. Scientists have detected water vapor in the atmosphere of a potentially habitable planet for the first time ever.

Ellie Bothwell, THE rankings editor, told Live Mint: "India has a huge amount of potential in global higher education, given its rapidly growing youth population and economy and use of English-language instruction".

Among new entries from India, the Institute of Chemical Technology in Mumbai and IIT Gandhi Nagar have made it to the top 501-600 group.

The Indian Institute of Technology - Ropar pushed Indian Institute of Technology - Indore, which remains in the 351-400 band, into third place.

Globally, the United States continues to dominate the ranking, with 172 institutions overall and 60 in the top 200.

In a statement on Wednesday, Trinity College Dublin called on the government to work with universities to develop a national strategy on rankings to reverse the slide in rankings witnessed in many Irish universities over the past decade. Iran one of the biggest climbers, left behind in its wake Australia, France, Russia and Taiwan with 40 universities.
