QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) reports this on their website.
The first place in the QS 2015/16 rankings of universities in the developing countries of Europe and Central Asia has been taken by Lomonosov Moscow State University, with the second place going to NSU. Third place was taken by the Czech Republic’s Charles University.
TSU and TPU have improved their position in the rankings. TSU rose from the 33rd place to 27th – 8th place amongst Russian HEIs – and TPU took 43rd place instead of 45th one year earlier – 11th place amongst Russian universities.
The creators of the rankings highly praised the scientific reputation of TSU, and the share of foreign students and teaching staff in TSU and TPU. We should also notice that TUSUR was included in the 111-120 group of HEIs.
It must be remembered that TPU and TSU are included in the 5-100 project, the goal of which is the increasing of Russian universities’ competitiveness among the leading world educational and scientific centers. In spring it became known that TSU and TPU are among the top four leaders of the project alongside the metropolitan Higher School of Economics and the St. Petersburg University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics.
