For the reference
The RankPro ranking gets issued annually by the International Council for Science. The Worldwide Professional University Ranking gets compiled out of three directions of universities’ ranking:
- Academic ranking means academic abilities of a university. When compiling this ranking, total number and composition of students and academic and research staff of a university are taken into account.
- Ranking by BC-index takes into account availability of information presented in English at the home page of a university’s web-site. When compiling this ranking, the considered parameters are general information about the higher education institution (its description), academic information and communication possibilities.
- Public ranking considers universities’ positions in global and national rankings as well as results of an expert survey of the International Council for Science members.
