Пятигорский государственный университет улучшил свои позиции в рейтинге высших учебных заведений ARES-2020

Even though the number of institutions that entered the ranking has increased almost by 25% (in 2019 ARES ranking published data about 198 Russian institutions), PSU occupies number 72, having increased its indices significantly.

(As a comparison, in 2015 the university had CCC mark and occupied the 100th place out of 138; in 2016 it acquired B+ mark and occupied the 101st place out of 173; in 2017 PSU received BB mark, occupying the 105th place out of 183; in 2018 PSU got BB+ mark and occupied the 73rd place out of 188 Russian institutions included into the ranking; in 2019 PSU got the same mark and occupied the 72nd place out of 198 Russian institutions ranked).

Lomonosov North (Arctic) Federal University, M.
