RUDN entered Times Higher Education (THE) Top-100 in “Student-to-staff ratio”. The list of best world-class universities has been published on the THE official web-site, where RUDN University is #96.
Times Higher Education has created this list to show which universities have the best student-to-staff ratios in the world as a way to help students work out which universities could be best placed to provide this type of learning environment.
A lower student-to-staff ratio can help students to cultivate closer relationships with their lecturers, have quicker access to essay feedback, and get involved in more interactive seminars and discussions.
All the universities in the top five are specialist institutions, with four of them dedicated to medical teaching. As these universities combine practical experience alongside theoretical learning, it may be that they require higher numbers of staff to support this teaching structure. It is also the case that many specialist universities have smaller student bodies, with higher numbers of teaching staff and faculty.
The US dominates the list, with 32 universities featured. Japan comes in second with 26 universities. The rest of the top 100 features universities from Russia, France, India and China. Noticeably, universities based in the UK are absent from the top 100.
Andrey Kostin, Russian oncologist, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, became the first Vice-Rector, Vice-Rector for Research at RUDN University.
RUDN has retained its position in the top 150 leading universities in the world in the international ranking — Times Higher Education: Golden Age University Rankings 2020. This is a list of the best universities in the world that were founded between 1945 and 1967.
