Recently SSU ranked 4th among Ukrainian universities by the QS World University Rankings. Moreover, on September 30 for the first time the second most important world university ranking “Times Higher Education” (THE) included SSU to the directory, that contains about 1100 universities in the world.

More. Expert commentary by Dmytro Filchenko (vice-rector, head of the center for webometrics and web marketing of Sumy State University, university ratings expert): QS World University Rankings highly evaluated research intensity of SSU (medium/high level). Rating THE confirm these figures, that’s why it included SSU among the next candidates to join the top-end cluster, despite the fact that this rating tracks universities with an outstanding history and research on publication activity at least 1000 articles in 5 years in the editions, indexed by Scopus. Considering the dynamic growth of SSU publications for the last few years, I’m sure that we can overcome this difficult barrier in the short terms (1-2 years).
