The Times Higher Education (THE) World Rankings 2014-15 has pointed out that there are many UK universities that have lost their places to some leading Asian Institutions among the top 200 positions. With the rising power of Asia this could be taken as an alarming bell for the developed countries worldwide.
In the ranking of top 200 universities, Asia has a total of 24 universities raising its number significantly over the years. Tokyo University and the National University of Singapore have even made it to the top 25 universities list. Six other Asian universities has made to the top 50, making a total of 10 universities remaining in the list of top 50 universities in the World.
With the constant fall of the British universities from the list the number of UK’s universities is going down year after year. The Universities of Reading, Dundee and Newcastle has fell out of the top 200 list which has affected the list a bit, making the participation of UK universities a little weaker in the list of universities. There are two other universities which are on the verge of exit from the list of 200 universities as well, remaining at the 198th and 199th place.
