Rankings changes

October 6, 2015

Dear users,

There are some changes in RUR Rankings we would like to notify you about:

1) Financial Indicators are removed from university profiles by the request of our data provider – Thomson Reuters.

2) We also removed University of Technology of Sydney from all rankings by the request of this institution.

3) Ranks and scores of University of Qatar in RUR 2015 were changed due to inaccuracy in financial indicators data we used. We used data in national currency instead of USD equivalent as in all other universities. Now it is changed and University of Quatar is ranked #634 in a world instead of #635 previously. This university also became #316 by Financial Sustainability instead of #325 before. All changes with this institution did not affect ranks and scores of other universities in our rankings.

Stay with us.
