Ural Federal University is not on QS World's Top Colleges list

February 27, 2014. Ural Federal University was not featured on the list of the world's top 200 colleges along ten different kinds of specialization, QS University Subject Rankings 2014 as presented by RIA Novosti in cooperation with the British company Quacquarelli states.

'The ranking positions were assigned to colleges based on four different criteria: the academic community's opinion, the employer's opinion, the citation index, and the Hirsch index that assesses a scientist's or a scholar's contribution to science. All in all, the research touched upon thirty different specializations. Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology are on top of the rating along most positions,' RIA Rating experts say.

The only Russian college that made it to the rating was Moscow State University. The university was given the 49th position in two specializations – Physics (compared with the 51st position in 2013) and Mathematics (compared with the 42nd position in 2013).
