THE World University Rankings 2018: India's IITs, IISc slip further on list
Indian Universities have never figured on top for the best rankings under 100 in its history. According to the latest ranking released on Tuesday by Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018 shows two UK institutions have lead on top with Oxford holding on to the number one spot for the second year in a row, while Cambridge has risen to second place.
Meanwhile, here is some bad news for India, as the country's flagship university, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), which was in the 201-250 band last year, has slipped into the 251-300 band.
IIT Delhi also slipped to 500-600 band from its previous year while IIT Kanpur also falls from 401-500 to 501-600.
According to Phil Baty who is the editorial director of Global Rankings at Times Higher Education, said,''It is disappointing that India has declined in THE World University Rankings 2018 amid increasing global competition".
