Fourteen Russian Universities Entered World University Rankings

Moscow State University placed only 116th, while St. Petersburg State University is on 253rd place in the annual QS World University Rankings

      Both universities lost their ground in the latest edition of the rating. Moscow State University dropped to 116th from the 112th position, while St. Petersburg University slipped two positions to 253rd place.

      The QS World University Rankings have been compiled every year since 2004 and includes 700 universities. They are evaluated on six criteria: reputation in the academic world, cited publications of the university, the ratio of teachers to students, the ratio of graduates to employers, as well as the relative number of foreign teachers and students.

      This year, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) topped the rankings for the first time in the rankings' history, while Cambridge dropped to second place after two years at number one.
