Ukraine is ranked 42nd overall, which comprises a rank of 28 for Resources, 43 for Environment, 44 for Connectivity and 38 for Output. On our approximate estimates, Ukraine ranks in the top 10 for expenditure on higher education as a share of GDP. However, because of its high participation rate (ranked 10th) expenditure per student is in the lower decile. R&D expenditure by tertiary institutions is also relatively low (ranked 43rd). The highest ranking for a Connectivity variable is 33rd, for the percentage of publications that are with international collaborators, but the rank is 49th for both joint publications with industry and rating of knowledge transfer with firms. Ukraine ranks 48th for both total publications and publications per head of population. The level of educational qualifications of its workforce is ranked highly at 14th. It loses points for not having a flagship university in the Shanghai top 500. When levels of GDP per capita are taken into account, Ukraine’s overall ranking improves to 37th, although its score is below that expected at its income level.
The first Ranking report was published in May 2012, with a second following in May 2013. The results of the third annual Universitas 21 Ranking were announced on 15 May 2014. The 2014 report includes the same 50 countries as in the 2013 report, which have again been ranked separately in four areas (Resources, Environment, Connectivity and Output) and overall. The research authors, based at the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research, University of Melbourne, looked at 24 measures across these four areas, allowing them to create a very detailed picture of the higher education system in each country. New for 2014, this data has also been compared against the values expected at each country’s level of economic development, to create a second and separate set of ranking results.
