A moment of pride for Pakistan as the 15th Edition of World University Rankings gets issued by the Times Higher Education, and 3 of the various Pakistani Universities gets ranked in the global top 900!
COMSATS Institute of Information Technology has been ranked in the range of 601-800, while the University of Agriculture and the National University of Sciences and Technology fall within the range of 801-1,000.
Six Pakistan universities which featured on the 1001+ rankings (those which did not make it to top 1,000 list) include Bahauddin Zakariya University, University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Lahore, Government College University Lahore, University of Lahore, PMAS Arid Agriculture University Rawalpindi, and University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Lahore.
Universities across the world were judged on the grounds of different factors, including their learning environment, research, citations, international outlook and knowledge transfer.
The United States of America and the UK dominate the top 10 positions, with seven US universities in the top 10, as the University of Oxford and Cambridge stand atop the names.
This is a big moment for the nation indeed as it gives us the appreciation our thriving education sector deserves, and also the motivation to continue growing so we can some day stand amongst the big names and achieve everything that our students are certainly capable of.
