AVV ranks 8th at NIRF

The Coimbatore-based Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham (AVV) has emerged as the 8th best university in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) Ranking 2018 for Indian Universities, that was released by the Minister of Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar.

“I am extremely thankful to the Government, all students and staff of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham for this great reward.  It is a wonderful outcome of the visionary leadership of the world-renowned humanitarian leader Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, in setting the dual goals of education for life and compassion-driven research. Significantly, Amrita is the only private university in the list of Top 10 universities in the NIRF Ranking 2018,” Dr P Venkat Rangan, VC, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, said.

This is a testament to the tradition of academic excellence, outstanding faculty and world class infrastructure that Amrita Viswha Vidyapeetham is known for since its inception in 2003.

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, which is only 15 years old, has been ranked the 8th best university in India behind well-established public institutions such as the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore; Jawaharhal Nehru University, Delhi; Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi; Anna University, Chennai; University of Hyderabad; Jadavpur University, Kolkata; and Delhi University.

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, with 20,000 students and 1800-plus faculty (including about 200 international faculty), is a multi-campus, multi-disciplinary research university that is accredited with ‘A’ grade by NAAC and also ranked high by international ranking agencies like THE and QS. The university is currently spread across five campuses in three States of India — Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka, with the University headquarters at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. The foundation stone for its upcoming campuses at Delhi and Amaravati have been laid recently.
