The top universities in South Asia are one of the best places to find the very best in education. Most South Asian countries have many excellent institutions of higher learning. But there is a shortage of high quality teaching staff in most of these universities because most government employees have been compelled to work in the public sector for the same pay they were once paid in the private sector. As a result, the governments have had to make their best efforts to recruit qualified teachers to fill these teacher vacancies.
This recruiting of teachers has been a priority of the governments of many countries in South Asia, but has not led to an increase in the numbers of teaching staff. In some cases, this recruitment and retention of teachers has been stymied by the fact that there just weren’t enough qualified teachers available to teach at the universities. But a great deal of good has been done by the governments in South Asia to remedy this situation. The government has started to organize numerous competitions for teachers who will be posted abroad to work in teaching positions at leading research universities.
This competition is among the reasons why the top universities in South Asia are now being filled by those who have a keen interest in the sciences. The courses at these universities are some of the best in the world. And with the amount of money these universities are now willing to spend on new teachers and graduate students, the demand for highly qualified professionals will only increase. It may take a while before the supply of new teachers matches the demand, but it will be something to celebrate, especially for those living in South Asia who would otherwise be without the benefits of the best in education.
