For the fourth year in a row, IIT-Bombay has been named India’s best university.

“India’s second-best university, the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), has risen from 193rd to 185th over the last year. It has done so by surpassing the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc Bangalore),” according to the British ranking agency QS.

 The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has remained at the top for a record ten years, while the University of Oxford has risen to second place for the first time since 2006. The University of Cambridge and Stanford University tied for third place.

In QS’s Academic Reputation (AR) metric, Indian universities have achieved sustained progress: 20 of the 35 newcomers have increased their AR rating, with only nine experiencing declines. In comparison to worldwide competition, Indian universities have enhanced their research impact. According to the British ranking organisation, the Citations per Faculty (CPF) score of seventeen of India’s 35 universities has improved.

“When universities are adjusted for faculty size, IISc Bangalore is the world’s top research university, receiving a flawless score of 100/100 for this criterion, according to the CPF indicator. IIT Guwahati (ranked 41st for CPF) is also a top-50 research university, the survey stated.

In QS’s assessment of institutional teaching capacity, Indian universities, on the other hand, continue to struggle. The Faculty/Student Ratio metric of QS has decreased at 23 of India’s 35 universities.

Jawaharlal Nehru University was ranked in the 561-570 band in the QS World University Rankings for the first time. A total of 35 Universities in India is listed in the table. Seven of them gained ground, seven saw declines, 14 remained in their previous positions, and seven were new entrants.
