2022 Ranking of Ukraine Universities

What are Ukraine’s most famous universities? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing the Ukrainian University Ranking for 2022, which includes 186 Ukrainian higher-education institutions that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist quality criteria:

  • being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant Ukrainian higher education-related institution, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

The Topuniversitieslist League Table and University Ranking of 186 Universities in Ukraine are available to see.
