Ben Sowter, Director of Research at QS, said: “The Indian higher education system has grown exponentially over the past decade. The number of universities has nearly doubled, and the number of colleges has grown by 50 per cent. The sheer scale of this development is awe-inspiring. Nevertheless, the domestic demand for tertiary education of its young population – which is estimated to become the world’s largest by 2030 – is growing more rapidly than the expanded provision.

 India’s higher education system plays a vital role in driving the nation’s competitiveness. It has produced some of the world’s best talent, including the CEOs of some of the world’s largest and most influential companies. This edition of the QS World University Rankings: Asia reflects the growth of the higher education sector in India with a broader representation of Indian universities. However, it also shows that that sustained investment in research funding, teaching, and internationalization is paramount to enhance India’s competitive edge.”
