Shoolini soars in THE Asia University Rankings-2024 

Solan, May 1
In yet another spectacular achievement, 14-year old Shoolini University has ranked number one private university and fifth overall in the country with the venerable India Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, taking the lead in the Times Higher Education (THE) Asia University rankings 2024.
The rankings, which were announced last night, placed Shoolini University at the 150th rank in Asia while the IISC Bangalore was placed at the 32nd rank in the continent.
Additionally, Shoolini University has topped among all universities, including the public sector universities in the country, in the parameters for International Outlook and has been ranked second in Research Quality .
THE Asia University Rankings use the same 18 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings, but they are recalibrated to reflect the attributes of Asia’s institutions. The 2024 ranking includes 739 universities from 31 territories. With 119 universities, Japan remains the most-represented nation this year. India follows with 91 institutions.
A total of 98 universities have joined the ranking since last year. This increase is led by India, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan.
Shoolini University Chancellor Prof PK Khosla said that the university had been keeping its focus on quality research and had been working on its international outlook through overseas faculty members and students.
Pro Chancellor Mr Vishal Anand complimented the researchers and faculty members of the university for achieving the top rankings this year. He said the university would continue to encourage research.
Vice Chancellor Prof Atul Khosla lauded the dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence of researchers to propel Shoolini University to even greater heights. He said  “our efforts in research continue to blossom demonstrating our deep commitment to quality of research and innovation at Shoolini University”.
The University, located in Solan district of Himachal Pradesh, had been winning accolades and had been bagging top positions in the rankings by the two international ranking agencies, the THE and the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) considered to be the gold standards for rankings.
In November last year, the University was declared the country’s number one university and Asia’s number fifth university in citations per paper by the QS World Rankings, the other leading global rankings organisation.
