BSU Climbs Up in QS World University Rankings

On September 5, the Quacquarelli Symonds (QC) agency revealed the annual QS World University Rankings, a list of the most prestigious universities in the world. According to the list, the Belarusian State University (BSU) is ranked 354th, which is the best result for BSU so far.

Since 2012, BSU has been climbing up in the rankings. In 2012, it was in the 501+ group, in 2013 the university occupied the 551st position, and in 2014 it was 491st. Last year, BSU was in the 421–430 group.

The Belarusian National Technical University (BNTU) joined BSU in the rankings, finishing in the 701+ group.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was named the best university in the world for the fifth consecutive year followed by Stanford University and Harvard University.  For the first time in over a decade, the University of Cambridge didn’t make the top three, dropping to the fourth position.

The QS World University Rankings are comprised taking into account six indicators – academic reputation, employer reputation, student–to–faculty ratio, citations per faculty, international faculty ratio, and international student ratio. In 2016, they have expanded to list more than 900 universities, with over 3,800 assessed. The top 400 universities are given individual ranking positions, and the rest are ranked in groups – starting from 401–410, up to 701+. The results are published in an interactive ranking table, which can be sorted by country/region and by each of the six performance indicators.
