17 April 2017
According to the results of the study of the English-language Internet resources of Russian universities conducted by the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) in 2016-2017, Lobachevsky University was ranked as one of the top 10 best Russian universities in terms of the quality of English-language Internet resources, taking the 9th position. Compared to the results of the 2015 ranking, UNN has improved its performance in the development of the English-language website by 9 points. The total sample of the 2016/2017 study comprised 47 universities across Russia, including federal universities, research universities, as well as universities with strong programs in foreign languages or those specifically targeting international students. The aim of the study was to show the strengths and weaknesses in the development of English-language content in the electronic resources of Russian universities. According to UNN Rector Evgeny Chuprunov, the development of the university English-language website has acquired a special importance in the context of today’s global competition for university entrants.
"We are actively promoting our international activities to consolidate UNN’s positions in the existing foreign markets for educational services and to access new markets. With the digital globalization, the website becomes one of the key effective communication channels. Therefore, promoting the University's English-language website with up-to-date, objective and interesting information for potential foreign applicants becomes one of our primary tasks", said Evgeny Chuprunov.
