UzhNU ranks 11th among all Ukrainian universities according to Webometrics

Webometrics Ranking of the World's Universities has published the updaded information about the performance of universities from all over the world based on their web presence and impact. UzhNU proved to be one of the best by finishing the 11th on the ranking list of all Ukrainian universities.

In recent years, Uzhhorod National University substantially improved its position in the Webometrics ranking. In July 2014, it ranked the 127th, in the summer of 2017 it was already the 24th.

Compared to January 2019, when UzhNU ranked the 17th, it has gone up by 6 positions in the register of Ukrainian universities. It has also moved up by 102 positions on the Webometrics ranking list of all the universities in the world.

The Webometrics ranking is a reputable, international "rank chart" of universities which objectively reflects the academic level of higher education institutions, in particular. Traditionally, the most powerful universities in the world are Harvard, Stanford, Massachusetts, Oxford, and Berkeley.

 The university's position in the international rankings is a very important indicator. Firstly, it has a great impact on the reputation of a higher education institution, and secondly, since 2020, the university's position in the international rankings has become one of the components of a new formula for public funding of higher education institutions in Ukraine. From now on, the state will allocate more money to more powerful universities and less to weaker ones.
