The University of Washington has been ranked No. 26 on the Times Higher Education world rankings for 2020, released Wednesday.

"It is encouraging to see UCT demonstrate such excellence in worldwide rankings", said UCT Vice-Chancellor Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, "particularly given the incredibly competitive, global arena we operate in and the enormous challenges we face in terms of declining national funding and the imperative to transform our institution".

Among those that made their debut in World University Rankings are IIT-Ropar, Institute of Chemical Technology, IIT-Gandhinagar, IIT-Patna, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Anna University, Banasthali University, Delhi Technological University, University of Mumbai and Siksha "O" Anusandhan.

The yardstick for the ranking are based on the universities' performance in teaching, research, knowledge transfer and how they are received on the internationally scene.

"It is welcome recognition that Griffith University is on an upward trajectory, reaffirming our increasing strengths in research, teaching and engagement".

To get the rankings, Times Higher Education assessed nearly 1,400 post-secondary institutions across 92 countries. In total, there top 500 in this year's Times Higher Education (THE) world university Rankings 2020 as against five in the 2019 ranking.

"India has a huge amount of potential in global higher education, given its rapidly growing youth population and economy and use of English language instruction".

"Canada performed well in this year's rankings, with the country's top institutions placing and progressing well among the global elite", said Baty.

According to THE editor Ellie Bothwell, the fact that NTU was able to climb 50 places this year in the face of fierce global academic competition was truly remarkable. The university also did well nationally, gaining six places to land 42 position among United Kingdom universities, indicating a climb in the tables on both fronts.

"Having said that, I do not underestimate the efforts by University of Auckland academic staff, and the support provided by their professional colleagues, that go into achieving these rankings" he said.
