QS World University Rankings: India Emerges as Top Performer Among G-20 Nations

New Delhi: India has emerged as the top-performing nation among G-20 countries in the latest QS World University Rankings, with a remarkable 14% year-on-year improvement in the average ranking of its universities. Nunzio Quacquarelli, President of Quacquarelli Symonds, highlighted in a LinkedIn post that India has become one of the world's fastest-growing research centers. From 2017 to 2022, India's research output surged by an impressive 54%, making it the world's fourth-largest producer of research.

Quacquarelli credited India's remarkable progress in higher education to visionary policies such as the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, led by Prime Minister Modi. "I had the honor of meeting the Prime Minister to discuss global higher education trends. During our engaging conversation, it was evident that PM Modi is passionately committed to revolutionizing Indian education, as reflected in the ambitious targets within the NEP," Quacquarelli wrote. The latest QS Subject Rankings show that these targets are beginning to manifest in the significant presence and improved performance of Indian universities.

According to Quacquarelli's analysis, which covered over 1,500 universities in 96 countries, Indian universities excel in 44 out of the 55 QS Subject Rankings. India's notable performances were observed in Computer Science, Chemistry, Biological Sciences, Business Studies, Physics, among others. The Institutes of Eminence (IoE) contributed 47 of the 69 Indian university positions within the top-100 in any of the Subject Rankings. Across Asia, India now boasts the second-highest number of featured universities in the QS Subject Rankings, following China.

"Congratulations to all the universities, their administrators, faculty, and students who have worked tirelessly to achieve these remarkable results. The future of Indian higher education is bright, and it is a privilege to witness this transformation," Quacquarelli added.

In line with India's rise in global education rankings, the Modi government introduced the New Education Policy (NEP) 2023, signaling a significant overhaul of the country's educational structure.

A key change in the NEP is the transition from the traditional 10 + 2 educational system to a more comprehensive 5 + 3 + 3 + 4 structure. Under the new arrangement, education will be divided into four stages - primary to second grade, third to fifth grade, sixth to eighth grade, and ninth to 12th grade. This restructuring aims to provide a more holistic and flexible approach to education, catering to the diverse needs of students across different age groups.
