Ukrainian universities are ranked among the best
This year, six universities in Ukraine are among the best universities in the world. However, in the 2016 rating the leader among Ukrainian universities has changed - now instead of Kyiv University it is Kharkiv. The rating also included universities from Kyiv, Donetsk and Sumy.
Quacquarelli Symonds, a specialist company, compiles and publishes an annual list of the best universities in the world. Traditionally, several universities in Ukraine have been ranked among the world's best educational institutions.
Thus, Kharkiv National University named after V. Karazin was in the first place among Ukrainian universities. This university has sharply raised its rating, having increased it by 120 steps and thus overtaking last year's leader - T. Shevchenko KNU. As for the leading metropolitan university, he not only lost leadership in the ranking, but also lost 10 positions at once.
Among the universities of Ukraine the honor to be in the international rating was won by KPI named after I. Sikorsky, Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute, Donetsk and Sumy universities.
As for the top ranked educational institutions, the first steps in it, according to specialists Quacquarelli Symonds, took the University of Massachusetts, Stanford and Harvard.
