NEFU in 24 place in Russian universities rating

 Top-40 universities is headed by MSU named after M.V. Lomonosov, the Higher School of Economics, and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.

Mikhail Fedorov, NEFU Vice-Rector for Pedagogic Education, said that the rating, which was compiled by the Higher School of Economics and the Russian Union of Rectors, took into account the results of competitions that had been included in the list of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

“Results of the previous years’ rating showed that the best school graduates were choosing the top 10-15 universities of Moscow and St. Petersburg. This year, applicants have also given preferences to regional universities. While choosing a university, they assess their prospects: thus, NEFU provides them with modern science laboratories, centers, and experienced lecturers with valuable knowledge”, Mikhail Fedorov says.
