QS India University Rankings 2021

A statement issued by QS, as a group, says that “Indian higher education performs ‘most strongly’ in research quality, though its universities are failing to increase their academic standing, teaching capacity, and levels of internationalisation at the same rate as competitors across the world.”

QS research director Ben Sowter said, “Though India’s universities have dropped as a group this year, this is beacause of other universities across the world making increasingly intense efforts to enhance their educational offerings.

To regain lost ground, Indian higher education must find ways of increasing teaching capacity, and of attracting more talented students and faculty across the world … There is plenty of potential and there are pockets of excellence, within the Indian system.”
