In 2017, the most authoritative experts and mass media national and international sources were used for preparation of the consolidated rating of higher education institutions of Ukraine: "Top 200 Ukraine", "Scopus" and "Webometrix". Each of them applies different criteria for assessing the higher education institutions.
The "TOP 200 Ukraine" evaluates using the aggregate indicator (integral index), which is formed on the basis of direct measurement indicators (80%), expert assessment of the quality of graduates’ training by employers and the academic community (15%), as well as using international science-metric and web-metric data (5%). The results of the "Scopus" rating are based on the citation rates of scientific articles published by the educational institution or its employees in the scientific journals. The international rating "Webometrics" takes into account the number of the university website’s pages indexed by search engines, external links to it, the citation of the resource, as well as the number of files uploaded to the site (content-related and informative activity of the website).
