24.11.2017

The National Research Nuclear University MEPhI has demonstrated remarkable growth in the International Ranking QS BRICS University Rankings – 2018, taking the 35th place in the overall ranking (4th place among the universities – participants of the Project 5-100).

“The significant strengthening the MEPhI position in the QS BRICS 2017, compared with the previous year, is largely determined by the participation of MEPhI in the Project 5-100 and transformation of the University in science, education, and management. The creation of five new institutions at MEPhI – the so-called strategic academic units – in breakthrough scientific areas in the past year has led to the improvement of education and research quality, and growth of international academic reputation of the University,” said the rector of MEPhI Mikhail Strikhanov.

The rating includes 300 best universities of BRICS countries, 68 of them are from Russia. Furthermore, 25 Russian universities entered the top-100 of the ranking; it’s 6 universities more than last year. Such increase in the representation of Russian universities is unique and unprecedented and has no analogues in the ranking, which suggests that Russian universities are making more rapid strides than their competitors from the BRICS countries, announced at QS.

Most of the Russian leaders of the rating are represented by the universities of the 5-100 Project. In total the ranking of the best universities of BRICS countries includes 19 universities participating in the Project, 15 of them are in the top hundred.

Authors of the rating assessed effectiveness of universities in five countries with emerging economies. Assessment of the universities was conducted according to eight criteria: academic reputation, reputation among employers, ratio of faculty to students, citation index and the share of scientific articles on the teacher, the share of foreign teachers, foreign students and lecturers with a scientific degree.
