Belarusian State University 21st in QS ranking

MINSK, 17 October (BelTA) – Belarusian State University made it to the top 1% of the best universities in emerging Europe and Central Asia, BelTA learned from the university’s press service.

According to the ranking released by the British agency QS on 16 October 2017, Belarusian State University is among the 25 highest-ranked universities in emerging Europe and Central Asia having climbed 18 positions up to the 21st place. Given that the region comprises over 2,900 universities, Belarusian State University is now placed in the top 1% of the region’s best higher education institutions.

The universities were assessed according to nine key performance indicators: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, staff with a PhD, papers per faculty member, citations per paper, international faculty members, international students, and web impact.

Belarusian State University holds the highest positions in academic reputation, employer reputation, and faculty/student ratio. “This illustrates the consistently high quality of teaching at the university and its well-deserved reputation in the country and the world because the ranking collates opinions of international experts,” the press service remarked.

Lomonosov Moscow State University tops the QS ranking, followed by Novosibirsk State University, the University of Tartu (Estonia), St Petersburg State University, and Charles University (Czechia). Belarus is represented by Belarusian National Technical University (79th), Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (118th), and Yanka Kupala Grodno State University (191-200).

The Emerging Europe and Central Asia ranking evaluates universities of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, and Ukraine.

Belarusian State University occupies high positions in many reputable international rankings (QS, THE, Webometrics, SIR, U-Multitrank, and others). For instance, it placed 334th in QS World University Rankings 2017/18. In 2017, the university was ranked 401-500 (Physics category) in the 2017 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), one of the oldest and most prestigious university rankings. That was the first time a Belarusian university made it to the ARWU. Belarusian State University remains the only Belarusian higher education institution included in the high-status British ranking THE (Times Higher Education).
