MEPhI improves position in QS Emerging Europe and Central Asia University Rankings

19.10.2017

The British company QS Quacquarelli Symonds has presented the results of ranking of universities, covering Emerging Europe and Central Asia (EECA). The ranking determined the best educational institutions on the basis of nine criteria: academic reputation, reputation among employers, ratio of the number of students and lecturers, foreign lecturers, foreign students, number of publications per faculty, number of citations per publication, percentage of employees with advanced degrees, and the visibility of the University on the Internet (so-called web impact). There are 74 universities from Russia among 250 participants. The first line of the rating has taken by the Lomonosov MSU.

The National Research Nuclear University MEPhI has shown a positive trend compared to the previous year, rising from 25th to 23rd place. Among the evaluated indicators, first and foremost, we should highlight the strengthening positions of MEPhI in such indicators as the rate of foreign students (28th place in 2016, and 19th in 2017) and the rate of foreign lecturers (15th in 2016 and 10th in 2017). Also the academic reputation and its reputation among employers have significantly increased.

"Improvement of MEPhI position in QS EECA 2018 is largely due to the participation in the Project 5-100. We have significantly increased the quality of student learning, including the influx of strong students," said the rector of the University Mikhail Strikhanov. “This year, the average unified state exam score of entrants has exceeded the 'grandmaster level' – 90 points (without taking into account the target set). I believe that deep transformation in the education system, science, and management allows to count on further progress in global and national rankings.”
