The British Times Higher Education magazine has published a new edition of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022, which includes 1,662 universities from 99 countries.

St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI" entered the 1201+ band and took 24th place among Russian universities. Compared to last year, LETI improved its results in Research (from 13.8 to 14.4 points), International Outlook (from 35.6 to 38 points), and Industry Income (from 60.7 to 61.4 points).

"For four years, LETI has been consistently listed in the prestigious Times Higher Education ranking. The presence in the recognized world rankings confirms the university's authority in the international arena, the recognition of LETI's scientific and educational results, and also indicates the correctness of the development strategy chosen by the university."

Viktor Sheludko, Rector of ETU "LETI"

"The increased presence of Russian universities in the THE ranking is an indirect recognition of the relevance of the Priority 2030 program. Today, Russia's leading universities devote efforts to achieving leadership in breakthrough research in specific areas, and this task should be measured, of course, only globally. The very fact that the new program was announced in Russia has certainly spurred many universities to adjust their development strategies, with the emphasis on performance and global recognition," added Viktor Sheludko.

In the new edition of the rankings, the number of Russian universities increased from 48 to 60. The best result belongs to Lomonosov Moscow State University. The leader of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022 was Oxford University (UK). The second and third places went to universities from the United States – the California Institute of Technology and Harvard University.
