EducationWorld, India’s #1 education magazine (an affiliate of ParentsWorld) in association with the reputed Delhi-based market research and opinion polls company Centre for Forecasting and Research Pvt. Ltd (C fore) conducted its annual EW India Higher Education Rankings 2018-19 to rate and rank the country’s Top 100 private universities, engineering colleges, and multidisciplinary arts, science and commerce colleges on several parameters of higher education excellence. We believe the league tables will enable parents to identify and shortlist the most suitable higher education institutions for their children.
