Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a global higher education think-tank, on June 10, released the QS World University Rankings 2022 that lists the world top higher education institutions. With an overall score of 100, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) topped the list for the 10th consecutive year.
The report indicates that the United States and European Union universities plus the United Kingdom manage to secure the top ten positions on the QS World University Rankings 2022.
While the University of Oxford holds the second rank, Stanford University stands third. University of Cambridge and Harvard University rank fourth and fifth, respectively.

Like last year, no Indian university got featured on the top-100 list. However, IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, and IISc Bengaluru are the only three universities that secured a spot among the top 200 for the fifth year straight.
Only 22 higher institutes from India could manage a place among the top 1000 universities of the world. However, this number remains comparatively unchanged from the past four years. There were 21 Indian Universities in the 2021 rankings, 23 in 2020, 24 in 2019 and 20 in 2018.
However, a statement by QS indicated that the Universities across India have improved their performance on academic reputation metric and research impact but still rank poorly looking at the teaching capacity metric. Amongst the top 250 universities for faculty-student ratio, no Indian universities fit in. Below are the top 10 Indian Universities that managed to get a place on the QS World University Rankings 2022:
|1||Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB)||46.4||117|
|2||Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD)||45.9||185|
|3||Indian Institute of Science (IISc)||45.7||186|
