The Best Places for Academics in the World

Academics play a vital role in every individual’s life. And most of us look for the most well recognised institution to enroll for our study courses. It is pretty obvious on our part to look out for the best of the lot. There are in fact countless institutions all over the world offering education facility to millions of learners.

Numerous educational faculties in the world are ranked according to the quality of education they provide to the students or learners. The faculty of the institution in fact is solely responsible for the fame these institutions get. The ranking is based on the international examinations result or outcome i.e. taking into consideration the graduation or post graduation rate in the world per year.

Michael Barber, a chief education adviser comments “successful countries give teachers a high status and have a culture of education.” United Kingdom is known for the high quality education it provides to the students. Thus it falls under one of the top ranking academic faculty in the world.
The top ranking countries in the field of education includes Finland and South Korea. Finland in fact holds the first position followed by South Korea. The other countries known for their education system according to their ranking are:
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • Singapore
  • UK
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Switzerland
  • Canada
  • Ireland
  • Denmark
  • Australia
  • Poland
  • Germany
  • Belgium
  • USA
  • Hungary
  • Slovakia
  • Russia
The top two renowned countries compete with three of the Asian educational system i.e. Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong.

The Program for InternationalStudent Assessment (PISA) helps researcher and politicians as well as policy makers to judge and compare the various educational systems in the world. However it is one of the most convenient methods of judging educational pattern differences in the world.
Brazil, Mexico and Indonesia are the lowest ranking countries in terms of educational facility. In diverse subjects exam had been conducted that figured out that there have not been much improvement in their educational pattern from the past few years.

Certain factors that determine the role in global academic ranking:
  • Quality of teachers or instructors
It is essential for the institutions to have quality staffs and teachers. Now if you consider school level education, it will be found that UK stands at the top, whereas Finland and Korea are comes under the low level category and Singapore surpasses them in terms of academics. Another important factor is the high payment of the teachers has no connection with their high performance. Teaching skill technique is endowed in them.
  • Data significance
The data analysis on academics gives us a clear view about the best academic institutions in the world. It had been estimated that the education standard had gone up at the end of 1990 and beginning of 2000 but again it went down. But the long term investment and workforce has brought about a massive transformation in the educational system of UK.

However, it is one of the leading countries in the educational sphere; all other nations are still struggling to make it to the top. Hence the department of education all over the world is putting their efforts in giving it a high profile shape for the benefits of the students.
