VolSU among top universities in U-Multirank
Volgograd State University is once again among top universities in U-Multirank. The international ranking only includes 44 leading Russian universities.
In 2020 more than 1700 universities from 92 countries around the globe participated in the ranking.
U-Multirank evaluates universities in the five dimensions of activity: (1) teaching and learning, (2) research, (3) knowledge transfer, (4) international orientation and (5) regional engagement.
A web-based ranking scale from A (very good) to E (weak) allows a prospective student to get an objective idea on different activity areas of the university and to make comparison for each subject area.
According to the results of an expert analysis, VolSU received the highest scores in quality of education (grade B) and participation in regional development (grade A).
A distinctive feature of the U-Multirank global ranking is the mandatory student survey. Annually more than 100,000 students become participants in the online survey. Their opinion on the aspects of teaching and learning at a particular university is a significant factor in the final evaluation. Based on the results of the ranking, VolSU students highly estimate the digitalization of the educational process, the level of organization of educational programs in terms of interesting material representation as well as the comfortable atmosphere while learning and direct contact with the faculty staff.
Participation in the ranking provides an opportunity to see how the university meets current trends and needs of the younger generation. The grades obtained become guidelines for the further development of the university.
