(G.N.S) Dt. 07 Bangalore Indian higher education institutes had a mixed performance in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) rankings for Asian universities 2018. According to statistics released by the Chinese Ministry of Education, more than 200,000 students from 64 countries along the Belt and Road Initiative were studying in China past year, up 13.6 per cent from 2015. While India, Japan, Pakistan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey have all increased their representation, many of their universities have fallen in the list.
Among all the 350 universities on the list, five of the top 10 are from the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong. "While it has not experienced the same rapid improvement as East Asian nations such as China, and while some of its institutions faced declines, India's overall rise proves that it can make advances year-on-year", said Phil Baty, editorial director of global rankings at Times Higher Education in a release.
Founded in 1971, THE is one of the most acknowledged and influential world university ranking institutions, using a set of 13 performance indicators to judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions.
