TOP universities in the world: World University Rankings

The best universities in the world annually accept hundreds of students from all over the world. The diplomas of these universities are appreciated in all corners of the world - the largest companies are happy to hire a specialist with quality education.

The ranking of the best universities in the world is compiled by international publications and commissions, the most authoritative of which are QS Ranking and Times Higher Education: they are independent and objective. Many university rankings are based on information received from these publications.

Unchanging factors affecting the ranking of the university:

  • number of students
  • number of teachers and graduates who have received Nobel Prizes or other international prizes
  • number of famous and successful graduates
  • university capital
  • number of programs, faculties
  • participation in research and world discoveries
  • percentage of international students
  • developed infrastructure.

World University Rankings help applicants make a choice for further studies: they will save time on studying information about dozens of universities. For employers, the ranking of the best universities in the world is also useful: they study it in search of talented and motivated employees. Many of the largest companies offer highly paid work to students of the best universities during their studies - there is so much competition in search of great minds.

It is difficult to enter the best universities in the world: there are 5-10 candidates in place. In many universities, first of all, personal qualities and language proficiency are valued: therefore, it is important to take pre-university courses in the country where you intend to receive higher education. It will increase the chances of successful enrollment. Many courses are open directly at universities - there are short-term and long-term programs (from one week to several months).
