Today, Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a known British company specializing in the global analysis of higher education institutions, has published a list of the 1000 best universities in the world – the QS World University Rankings 2021.
For the first time, Perm State National Research University (PSU) has entered the QS world ranking list, taking #801-1000 place, as a result of a tough but reasonable educational competition, on a global scale. Out of Russia, only 28 universities have entered the world list.
In their comment to PSU Facebook page, the QS Top Universities hailed: A massive congratulations to everyone at the Perm State National Research University and welcome to the list! Find the full results at https://hubs.ly/H0r1q990#QSWUR
The QS experts place PSU among 68% of the leading universities. TPSU has proved solid strong positions in such indicators as the students’ view of teaching staff (307 place in the world list), academic reputation (501+ place) and reputation among employers (501+ place).
In addition to mentioned criteria, QS evaluates universities by their citation index, the share of international students and foreign teaching staff.
QS World University Rankings have been published since 2004. Previously, PSU had been already included in other Quacquarelli Symonds ratings – like the QS University Rankings: BRICS Index (2014), entering the list of the best universities in developing countries in Europe and Central Asia (2016).
QS rankings are recognized as one of the most influential on the global scale, along with the Round University Ranking of World Universities and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
