Humanities and medical sciences ranking include the least number of Russian universities – 11 and 7 respectively.

MEPhI has entered the top 100 for the “quality of teaching” criterion in two substantive ratings – natural and technical sciences.

This criterion takes into account the international reputation of the University in teaching, number of students and bachelor graduates per faculty and the number of degrees per faculty and degrees per one graduate-bachelor.

RUR has been producing ratings since 2010 which are based on 20 criteria, divided into four groups: teaching quality, financial sustainability of universities, research and international diversity (the number of foreign students, teachers, works in collaboration with foreign authors).
