Phil Baty, Chief Knowledge Officer at THE released a statement “This year, we have seen more universities join the rankings than ever before, and witnessed Nanyang Technological University, Singapore – at barely 30 years old – become the first Singaporean university to achieve the number one spot. The dynamism of these younger institutions is reflected throughout the rankings, but maybe most obviously in the top ten, where we see a record seven countries and regions represented in the group for the first time.”

“Despite youth often being paralleled with ‘inexperience’ in a centuries-old university sector, these institutions have the ability to be proactive and flexible in the ever-changing higher education environment, not held back by tradition or expectation and are offering world-class education, research and teaching across their missions. They are well poised to shake up traditional higher education hierarchies, he added.

However, no Indian University has made it to the top 10 or 50 yet. IIT Ropar lost one spot from last year and went on to occupy the 63rd position this year from 62nd, IIT Indore has also slipped behind 12 positions since 2020.
