The global University Ranking Quacquarelli Symonds World University Ranking (QS WUR) annually publishes the results of the ranking-QS World University Rankings. The main selection is carried out among about 2000 universities, and as a result, 700 of them are evaluated as the most suitable and competitive.
When evaluating universities, six main indicators are taken into account:


1. Academic reputation (40%). Academic reputation (survey). The survey of representatives of the international academic community (QS Global Academic Survey) is attended by professors and university leaders with an average experience in science of 19.6 years. Among them are leading scientists and rectors of more than 500 universities. The respondent can name up to 30 universities, without naming the educational institution in which he serves.


2. Employer reputation (10%). Reputation among employers (survey). Several thousand companies from more than 90 countries take part in the survey of employers ' representatives (QS Global Employer Survey). In the course of the study, employers are asked to identify the best universities that train highly qualified personnel.


3. Student-to-faculty ratio (20%). The ratio of the teaching staff in relation to the number of students.


4. Citations per faculty (20%). The citation index of scientific articles of the teaching staff in relation to the number of teaching staff. QS uses the Scopus bolometric system as a database. The period of accounting for both publications and citations is equal, and is 5 years.


5. International faculty ratio (5%). The share of foreign teachers in relation to the number of teaching staff (at the equivalent of the full rate). An international teacher is someone whose citizenship does not coincide with the country in which the university is located.


6. International student ratio (5%). The share of foreign students in relation to the number of students (full-cycle programs). The number of foreign students, i.e. those whose citizenship does not coincide with the country of the university's physical location, is divided by the total number of students.
