The report further justifying the decline in ranking of US and UK universities said,” the US Universities are struggling to compete in terms of value for money, as they lack the strong global brand recognition of their elite compatriots. While in the UK, only a small group of elite universities are covering the general decline of its higher education system. Despite the likes of the University of Cambridge, Imperial College of London, and University of Oxford are improving or maintaining position in the top 20 since 2019, the UK has fallen from the 2nd spot in 2010 to 4th spot in 2020 in terms of the best-performing countries and regions for employability.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has made the burden whole year not only on experienced or higher degree-holder but also for graduates to find a job and it became a serious challenge to get a reputed job. Now, it is the responsibility of universities to make their education atmosphere more inclined toward the ability to provide employment rather than focusing on its reputation and brand name as students and their parents are looking for and motivated by the performance of countries and colleges in terms of employability.
Jamie Ramacciotti, head of student content, THE, stated that employability represents the return of investment on education for many students and their parents. Employability is something which attracts the student and parents to get admission in a particular college or institution and it can be a critical part of the decision-making process as student decide where and what to study. Students want to feel confident that the money and time that they invested in a degree program must ensure them a better job career and will make them strong candidates for post-graduation. Elite universities from the US and UK remain on the top and students have more choices as India, Australia, Canada, and other countries performed very well.
