FEFU entered the TOP-30 of the best Russia’s universities according to Forbes


Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) took 29th place in the updated annual ranking of the 100 best domestic universities from Forbes Russia. In the assessment, much attention is paid to the quality of education, the demand for graduates from employers, and international cooperation programs.

In 2020, Forbes researchers introduced an updated rating methodology. In the metric “Quality of education”, which is based on monitoring data from the Ministry of Education, a comprehensive parameter “Professors Qualification” (25 points) has appeared. Forbes evaluated the “international activity” of universities (15 points) based on the share of foreign students, the availability of foreign internships, and double-degree programs with foreign universities. The parameter “Examination level” (10 points) for those who entered the first year is also traditionally taken into account. When scoring, the researchers, together with representatives of the Avito Job service, asked 59 of the largest Russian companies whose graduates they would like to hire in priority order.
