Round University Ranking (RUR) is a world university ranking, which measures performance of 930 leading world universities by 20 indicators across 4 key missions: teaching, research, international diversity and financial sustainability.

RUR Rankings is designed as an evaluation system aimed to provide sufficient information about university performance to address stakeholder's personal tasks: students, academic community, university management, policy makers.

All raw data for RUR Rankings is provided by an international company Thomson Reuters and covers the period from 2010 to the present.

The following principles are the basis of the RUR Ranking:

  • Sample stability, reduced volatility in the positions and scores of universities
  • Equal distribution of the indicators between dimension areas
  • Equal weights within the dimension areas
  • Inclusivity: any institution has the opportunity to participate in the ranking



RUR Reputation ranking is based on two indicators, which are taken from the Overall Ranking methodology: Teaching Reputation and Research Reputation.
