DEEP DIVE ON TLR (TEACHING, LEARNING & RESOURCES) – PART 2

Faculty-to-Student Ratio (FSR)

Faculty-to-Student Ratio (FSR) is an important metric that indicates how much attention a student is going to get inside the Institution, which will directly impact the Learning of the student.

FSR Score looks at the Number of Regular Faculty available in the Institution and is measured against the Total Students.

Total Students is calculated as a Sum of Total Approved Intake of the Institution (Across all UG & PG Programs) and Total Enrolled students in the PhD Program (Research Scholars).

All Full-time Faculty and all Contractual / Adhoc Faculty who have taught in both the semesters of Academic Year 2016-17 are included to calculate the Regular Faculty of the Institution.

If any Institution, has a FSR Ratio of 1:15 (1 Faculty to 15 Students) or better, will get the full marks. However, if any Institution has a FSR Ratio of 1:50 or beyond, then they would get Zero Marks.

The FSR analysis for Top 100 Universities can be seen in the picture above. There are many Institutions who have a FSR of 1:15 or better (Indicated as Safe Zone).

There are many Universities in the FSR range of 1:15 to 1:36 in the Top 100 Ranks. Though they are not having a good FSR as per NIRF Guidelines, they are still in Top 100 Ranks because, they are doing very well on other Sub-Parameters of the NIRF Rankings.

The Moderate Zone and Danger Zone indicates the level of Probability these Institutions have, to be part of the Top 100 Ranks in the coming years (Basis the FSR Score alone and Provided the level of competition and benchmarks remain similar to that of NIRF2018 Ranks).

The FSR analysis for Top 100 Engineering Colleges can be seen in the picture above. There are many Institutions who have a FSR of 1:15 or better (Indicated as Safe Zone).

Similar to Universities, there are many Engineering Colleges in the FSR range of 1:15 to 1:36 in the Top 100 Ranks. Though they are not having a good FSR as per NIRF Guidelines, they are still in Top 100 Ranks because, they are doing very well on other Sub-Parameters of the NIRF Rankings.

The Moderate Zone and Danger Zone indicates the level of Probability these Institutions have, to be part of the Top 100 Ranks in the coming years (Basis the FSR Score alone and Provided the level of competition and benchmarks remain similar to that of NIRF2018 Ranks).

Green = Public Institutions
Blue = Private Institutions

The FSR analysis for Top 50 Management Schools can be seen in the picture above. Most of the Management Schools have a FSR of 1:15 or better (Indicated as Safe Zone).

There are only a few Institutions who have a FSR below the criteria of 1:15. Hence, there is no Moderate Zone in Management Schools and only Danger Zone, which indicates that these Institutions have a lower level of Probability to be part of the Top 50 Ranks in the coming years (Basis the FSR Score alone and Provided the level of competition and benchmarks remain similar to that of NIRF2018 Ranks).
