University “Ss. Cyril and Methodius” again topped at the national rankings of universities and institutions of higher education with the best performing in the academic year 2011/2012.

The list is prepared by the Centre for World Class Universities at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, a leading institution for global ranking of higher education institutions.

Immediately behind Ss. Cyril and Methodius, as announced by the Ministry of Education and Science is University “Goce Delchev” in Stip, and the third ranked is South East European University in Tetovo.

Fourth and fifth place by ranking went to the University of Information Science and Technology “St. Paul the Apostle” in Ohrid and the University “Ss. Kliment Ohridski” in Bitola.

The Minister of Education Spiro Ristovski stressed that Macedonia remains the only country in the region, which thanks to the efforts of the government, has implemented a national ranking of universities and higher education institutions within the universities themselves, enrolled in the Register of higher education institutions.

– Most of this year’s ranking results, based on the indicators, are significantly improved, especially in terms of the time of graduation. But the general impression is that all institutions of higher education need to focus more on the process of internationalization in the future, i.e. the mobility of students and professors that are international recognized, Ristovski said.

He emphasized that, according to the results, the research and investment in scientific research at the private universities are still lagging behind public universities.

The list, announced today by the Ministry of Education and Science, will be placed on the website of Jiao Tong, and it summarizes the results of teaching and learning, research and social dimension.
