Madison again makes top 50 in World University Rankings

The National University of Singapore (NUS) may have gone down by just one spot but, in the process, it has been knocked off its perch as Asia's top university by China's Tsinghua University in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Profiling the institution on its website, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings describes the school as one of the leading universities in Africa found on Christian Mission Ethos. However, none of the Indian universities made it to the top 250.

The Université de Montréal, meanwhile, improved on last year's 108th place in the rankings by tying for 90th. It was included in the 251-300 band.

It overtook the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay, which slipped from the 351-400 band to the 401-500 band.

Pradeep Mathur, director of IIT-Indore, told THE: "Our efforts in making research the focus of the institute is now reflected in the form of citations and other impact metrics of research". Japan surpasses Britain as the second most-represented in the listing of 1,250 higher education institutions for the first time.

Tsinghua University is now the top university in Asia, after rising eight places to 22nd.

This puts UWI in the elite band of the top five per cent of universities worldwide based on data showing that there are over 25,000 recognised universities, globally. Chulalongkorn University, which is Thailand's oldest university, also plunged from the 601-800 band to the 801-1,000 band, while King Mongkut's University of Technology Thon Buri and Suranaree University of Technology have also suffered the same fate.

California Institute of Technology and Stanford University in the United States are both ranked third, followed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (5), Harvard University (6) and Princeton University (7), the rankings indicated.
