“THE’s Asia University Rankings shines a bright light on higher education in a very diverse continent and shows India’s universities are becoming increasingly innovative and dynamic,” said Phil Baty, Times Higher Education’s Chief Global Affairs Officer.

“The very rapid growth of Indian universities willing to put themselves forward for assessment in the international rankings is very impressive, showing a real appetite to compete on a global stage and to benchmark against the very best in the Asian continent, and the world. The data shows an increasingly diverse and dynamic Indian higher education sector, with huge potential driven by the NEP (National Education Policy) reforms,” he said.
