MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - The corresponding decree was signed by the Russian government head, the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper writes, recalling that the criteria for the selection of such universities had been developed in early August this year. There are actually only two main requirements. The first - the universities should be included in the top 300 of the three leading rankings at the same time. They are: the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), the QS World University Rankings and The Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The second requirement is that Russia should not have an agreement on the diploma recognition with the countries where these leading universities are located.
Now the list of the universities, diplomas samples and information about the levels of education in these universities will be placed on the Internet within six month.
The recognition of diplomas of foreign states with which Russia has no agreements, will allow Russia’s universities to more actively attract teachers from abroad, the newspaper stresses. The recognition of the diplomas in this case, according to the official documents, will be made under a simplified scheme. First of all, Russia is interested in inviting professors from Cambridge University, Technical University of Munich, Trinity College, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. These universities are mentioned in the government’s decree.
The Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily gives the list of top ten universities, which includes Australian National University (ANU), University of Vienna, University of Birmingham, University of York, Cambridge University, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), University of Oxford, University of Hamburg, Munich Technical University, the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.
According to the Higher School of Economics, 40 leading Russian universities, including Moscow State University, St. Petersburg State University, will need about 6,000 lecturers from abroad. The number of foreign teachers in the country’s universities will reach 10%. Meanwhile, their share reaches 50% in the world’s leading universities.
