Countries with World’s Strongest Higher Education System

When we talk about the strength of different higher education systems in the world, the US and the UK remain predominantly the best players in the market with the world’s strongest higher education systems.

Continental Europe is catching up in the rankings provided by Higher Education System Strength (HESS) rankings. The European countries are emerging as the most-featured countries in a list of top-50 university nations.

While there are four Asian countries featured in the list of top 10 countries with best higher education systems, the Indian System of Higher Education fails to find any place.

Given below is a list of countries with the best higher education system:

Name of the Country                  

  1. The United States
  2. The United Kingdom
  3. Germany
  4. Australia
  5. Canada
  6. France
  7. Netherlands
  8. China
  9. South Korea
  10. Japan


The Strength of a Higher Education System

The criteria used to determine the strength or weakness of a higher education system of a country is not just based on its top universities. There are more significant factors including:

  • The overall performance of a country’s top institutions
  • Accessibility to its higher education
  • The strength of its economy
  • The strength of country’s higher educational system

What does the Ranking Suggest?

A number of inferences can be drawn from the ranking provided by HESS as given below:

  • The global reputation of the UK is being affected by its continued cuts in the funding of higher education along with its immigration measures that affect a vast number of international students.
  • Given that India is nowhere to be seen in the list of top countries with the strongest higher education system, it calls for a greater awakening by parents and students. In a given scenario, it makes sense to opt for study abroad choices as they promise exposure and access to much higher-ranked educational institutes offering a high return on investment for students undertaking courses in those institutions.
