LONDON, October 15, 2018 — QS Quacquarelli Symonds, the global higher education think tank responsible for the world’s most-consulted world university rankings, released their first standalone ranking of India’s higher education institutions.

The inaugural edition of the QS India University Rankings is designed to offer an independent analysis of the performance of Indian institutions. The rankings include Public Universities, Private Universities, and H.E. Institutions or Deemed Universities.

IIT Bombay is named India’s leading institution. IITs take up seven of the top-10 places. IIS Bangalore takes the second spot. Twenty Indian institutions receive full marks in the Staff with Ph.D., the indicator designed to identify the extent to which institutions are cultivating a highly-qualified faculty body. In the research productivity indicator, nine institutions achieve a score between 98.4 and 100.

IIT Bombay, Madras, Delhi, Kharagpur, Kanpur and the University of Delhi enjoy outstanding regard among the nearly 43,000 international employers surveyed, while IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, and the IIS Bangalore were the most voted by 83,000+ international academics polled.

On a metric-by-metric basis, other institutions also stand out such as the Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, which achieves the highest score of the QS’s indicator of research impact, adjusted for faculty size.

Ben Sowter, Research Director, QS, said: “This inaugural table evaluates the Indian institutions through independent and international lenses. The results reveal that research productivity at leading Indian institutions is increasing and the impact of such research is gradually rising. They also enjoy a good standing with employers while they achieve less recognition with their international academic peers, perhaps suggesting the need to intensify regional and global collaborations.”

Institutions have been scored on academic reputation (30 per cent), employer reputation (20 per cent), faculty-student ratio (20 per cent), proportion of staff with PhD (10 per cent), papers per faculty from Scopus database (10 per cent), citations per paper from Scopus database (5 per cent), proportion of international students (2.5 per cent) and proportion of international faculty (2.5 per cent).
