1500 universities of Europe, Asia and North America have been included in this year’s ranking. The methodology of QS World University Ranking 2023 encompasses 8 indicators each of which has its own percentage ratio. The most important one is the scientific and educational reputation of the university, as well as the number of foreign students. In addition, the professional qualities of graduates of a given university, the level of competitiveness in the global labor market, student and lecturer ratio, and research work of the departments (institutes) are evaluated.
We would like to highlight that this is the second year in a row when Russian-Armenian University has been named the best university of Armenia by QS EECA (Emerging Europe and Central Asia) University Rankings. Last year RAU ranked 128th, well ahead of Yerevan State University (173rd), Armenian State University of Economics (241-250), Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction (251-300) and American University of Armenia (301-350).
It should be noted that the QS World University Rankings were first published in 2004 in collaboration with the well-known magazine Times Higher Education, and in the next years it was guided by its own methodology. At present it is considered one of the most significant ranking systems in the world.
