According to the latest report released by QS, the UoH continues to rank among the World’s Top Universities in the range of 651-700. QS has categorized UoH as an “established medium sized public university with high research intensity and comprehensive subject focus”.

According to the QS release, six indicators determine the institutions’ rankings — academic reputation (40 percent), employer reputation (10 percent), faculty-student ratio (20 percent), citations per faculty (20 percent), the proportion of international students (5 percent) and the proportion of international faculty (5 percent).

Overall, in the 2022 edition, the UoH performed among the top 50% in the QS World University Rankings. At 305 rank globally, the Citations per Faculty is the strongest indicator for UoH. In citations per faculty, UoH has scored 46.1 out of 100 points, whereas the Global Median is 39.2, indicating the widespread reach and impact of its published work.

Responding to the latest QS Rankings 2022, Prof. Arun Agarwal, Vice Chancellor, said, “UoH has again been ranked among the Top Global Universities which is a good indicator of its sustained performance. However, we have slid down in some parameters that have affected the overall ranking and we will discuss and take measures to strengthen those areas. We need to perform much better in all key areas of teaching and research to be among the Top 200 in the World. I am confident that with the Institution of Eminence (IoE) tag, our university will be able to reach the level of the Top performing institutions of the world. The huge numbers of foreign applications across disciplines – in a few thousands and still rising – we received in 2021 are evidence that the IoE’s work is getting international attention”
