Thursday, October 11, 2012 The list of least successful universities to be published by November 1st, 2012
The list of the most lagging behind higher educational institutions in Russia will be ready by November 1st, 2012, said Alexander Klimov, Russian deputy minister of education and science, at a meeting of the Council of Russian leading universities Association, which took place in Bauman Moscow State Technical University.

The least successful HEIs will be judged by several criteria: the average USE score of freshmen; the volume of scientific research projects, design and experimental technological work per one teacher; the total number of international student graduates excluding those from the CIS countries; one of the criteria is also the total income the institution gets from all its sources per one teacher; besides, the total area that the institution occupies and owns will also be assessed.

The HEIs failing four of these five criteria will be considered the most lagging behind. They will be subject to a separate evaluation by the Ministry of Education and Science, which will draw its conclusions by March 2013.

As IA REGNUM earlier reported, the Ministry is currently carrying out a monitoring activity of Russian HEIs in order to further reorganize the ones that are most lagging behind. They will either be annexed to more successful institutions, or liquidated. It is planned to cut down the list of Russian HEIs by 20%. Currently 531 out of 549 institutions provided the required information to the ministry.
