The British Times Higher Education (TME) magazine has included four Kazakh universities in its annual World University Rankings. Delovoy Kazakhstan compares the number with that in 2019 when only two universities had made the list. 

World University Rankings

1,600 universities from 99 countries were selected and ranked. The Kazakh universities chosen are:

  • Al-Farabi Kazakh National University

  • L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University

  • Satbayev University

  • Kazakh National Pedagogical University named after Abai

The ranking is based on 13 criteria that measure universities’ performance across the following four areas: teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook.

Besides World University Rankings, ten more Kazakh universities were included in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2022.  

According to Astana Times, in addition to the Kazakh National Pedagogical University named after Abai, Kazakh National University named after Al-Farabi, and Eurasian National University named after L.N. Gumilev, seven more local universities are listed in another prestigious rating, Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2022, which assesses universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

  • Narhoz University

  • Almaty Management University (Almau)

  • Karaganda University of Kazpotrebsoyuz

  • Kazakh-British Technical University (KBTU)

  • Kokshetau University named after Shokan Ualikhanov

  • South Kazakhstan State University named after M. Auezov

  • University of South Kazakhstan

  • M. Auezov South Kazakhstan State University

  • Sulaiman Demirel University

The ranking is carried out in compliance with four indicators: conducting research in urgent areas, managing the key factors of SDGs, the role of the university at the regional, national and international levels, and educating students about sustainable development goals.

According to the analytical website, Nazarbayev University ranked 1,765th out of 2,000 elite universities in the Global 2000 list compiled by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR). 

The CWUR has been publishing an academic ranking of global universities since 2012 considering the quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, and research performance without relying on surveys and university data submissions.
