The Indian newspapers have been yelling the THES rankings with captions such as NOT A SINGLE INDIAN UNIVERSITY IN WORLD TOP 200 (see link) and there are obvious mentions of the rankings of leading Universities from around the world. However there is no mention of the fact in the Indian media that 23 of the 39 Australian Universities which is a good 60% of all Universities are in top 400 in the world and possibly making it the world leader by that calculation. It is possible that the most sought after are the Harvards or Oxford but overall the quality of Aussie Universities as an average is far higher than rest of the world…
This is as per the THES rankings. If we look at the other respected ranking done by QS and that was released earlier, the finding is similar or possibly even better. When two competing rankings give the same verdict, the Indian mindset must change… towards Australian quality.
