A total of 86 China higher educational institutions have made it to the list of the world’s 250 top universities in the BRICS member-countries.
LONDON, July 20 - Chinese universities again confirmed their dominance in the 2016 rankings.
A total of 86 China higher educational institutions have made it to the list of the world’s 250 top universities in the BRICS member-countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).
The top five places went to Chinese institutions. Led by Tsinghua University (1st) and Peking University (2nd). China now occupies the top five spots in the ranking, and accounts for almost half (23) of the top 50.
The best top ten Chinese university represented in the rankings are followed by Fudan University (3rd), University of Science and Technology China (4th), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (5th), Nanjing University (8th), Zhejiang University (9th), Beijing Normal University (11th), Wuhan University (16th) and Tongji University (17th).
Russian universities have come second in terms of representation in the list of the world’s top universities in the BRICS member-countries.
The best Russian university represented in the rankings is Lomonosov Moscow State University, even though now it ranks 7th (compared to last year’s 4th place).
The list of Russia’s top ten universities also includes St. Petersburg State University and Novosibirsk State university (sharing the 20th place), Bauman Moscow State Technical University (38th), Tomsk State University (43rd), Moscow State Institute of International Relations (44th), Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (48th) and National Nuclear Research University (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute) (50th).
It has been a mixed bag for Indian education institutions in the QS BRICS 2016 university rankings.
While India expanded its base in the rankings with 17.6 per cent of the 250 universities from the country, its highest ranked university, the Indian Institute of Sciences, Bengaluru, fell one place to 6th from last year's rankings. Apart from that, six of the top 10 Indian universities in the rankings also lost positions. Also, India has one fewer university in the top 20 when compared to the 2015 rankings.
The 2016 ranking has been extended to feature the top 250 BRICS universities (compared to 200 in the previous lists). Brazil and India now have 54 and 44 entries respectively (compared to 40 and 31 last year). South Africa has 11 universities featured led by University of Cape Town (14th place).
QS Quacquarelli Symonds, global higher education analysts and compilers of the QS World University Rankings, releases a ranking of the best universities in the BRICS nations every year.
BRICS member-countries collectively accounting for 42% of the world’s population, these five nations remain significant players in the changing global economy, and all have placed higher education at the center of plans for continued development.
