The Rector of UzhNU Volodymyr Smolanka says: "We are very pleased with the university's high position in the reputable international Webometrics ranking with the world's leading institutions of higher education, such as Harvard University, Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California, Berkeley, Oxford at the top. It includes new additional indicators that objectively reflect, in particular, the scientific level of universities. Unlike some national rankings, whose assessment criteria are not always clear, the Webometrics is a better reflection of a really high position of our university among Ukrainian institutions of higher education."
