According to the YevroOsvita website

The Center for International Projects «Euroeducation» in partnership with the international group of experts IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence presented the fourteenth academic ranking of higher education institutions of Ukraine «Top-200 Ukraine 2020».

While compiling this year’s ranking, the experts took into account current trends in university development, summarized by the IREG 2019 Conference (Bologna, Italy, May 8–10, 2019) and the Berlin Principles, approved by the participants of the second IREG meeting (Berlin, Germany, May 18 – 20, 2006).

Basic principles of determining the rankings of Ukrainian universities

  • To ensure openness, transparency and independence of university rankings. For this purpose, only open data, shown on open web resources of independent national and international organizations and institutions, were used. The method of calculating university rankings is available to the public in order to verify the results obtained.
  • To take into account the comprehensiveness and versatility of universities. For this purpose, their work was collectively evaluated on a broader basis of indicators compared to known ranking systems. In particular, this year’s ranking of Ukrainian universities is based on ten indicators, six of which are international and four – national.

University’s attractiveness to entrants

  • Based on the importance of European integration processes of higher education in Ukraine, the weights of international indicators of university activities (results in world rankings, participation of universities in Erasmus+ programmes of the European Union) are set higher than the weights of national indicators.

For each higher education institution, the weighted arithmetic mean of the University Index was calculated by group of nominations. The university ranking is defined as the inverse of the University Index.

Thus, according to the results of the ranking, the top five of the fourteenth academic ranking of higher education institutions of Ukraine «Top-200 Ukraine 2020» includes the following universities:

  1. National Technical University of Ukraine «Igor Sikorskyi Kyiv Polytechnic Institute» (3.75);
  2. Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (3.81);
  3. Sumy State University (7.89);
  4. National Technical University «Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute» (8.00);
  5. Lviv Polytechnic National University (14.46).
