Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MCOPS) ranked No. 1 in India by National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) of the Union Human Resource Ministry in 2016, finds a place in QS World University Rankings of 2017. "It is a remarkable achievement. We've always been proud of our pharmacy college," said Dr. H. Vinod Bhat, Vice Chancellor, Manipal University.

"We are extremely happy that the pharmacy and pharmacology stream of Manipal University has featured in the QS World University Ranking by Subject 2017. This is the first time that Manipal University's subject stream is getting into world rankings, and it is a very high entry at 251-300 range.
