Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) has improved its ranking in the National Institute Ranking Frame (NIRF) – 2020, released by Minister of Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ on Thursday.

The university is ranked 51st among all Central, public and private universities in the country. Earlier, it stood at the 59th place. Vice-Chancellor Prof Jaspal Singh Sandhu said the NIRF ranked the institutes on the basis of five parameters — teaching and learning resources, research and professional practice, graduation outcome, overall inclusivity and perception.

This year, GNDU improved its performance in three out of the five criteria — research and professional practice, graduation outcome and perception.

A good ranking in the NIRF enables the universities to get several prestigious grants from federal funding agencies.

GNDU is also ranked among the top 9 per cent universities in the world and the top 10 state public universities in the country as recently assessed by a leading international evaluation agency — Centre for World University Ranking (CWUR).
