The Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) has released a ranking of the English-language websites of Russian universities for 2018. The English site of Tomsk State University, like last year, took third place.
The RIAC experts included 65 Russian universities in the ranking “Electronic Internationalization: English-language Internet Resources of Russian Universities 2017-2018.” These were federal universities, research universities, and the universities participating in the 5-100 project.
- The English version of the site (en.tsu.ru) is based on the Russian version, so it is our common achievement, - explains Maria Kochetkova, the editor of the English version and employee of the Department of Information and Communication. - TSU is actively developing the export of education, and more and more international students are choosing our university, so the English version of the site is what forms their first impression of the University. It also enables international people who are interested in TSU to keep up with our news and events, and to see and appreciate what TSU is doing in so many areas.
TSU understands the importance of adapting information to English-speaking users, so the site is supported by Jean Kollantai, a native speaker, who helps make texts understandable and attractive for international visitors. Also, the TSU team is constantly working to improve the usability and attractiveness of the site, moderating it with the recommendations of experts.
The ranking of English-language sites of Russian universities, like last year, is headed by the Higher School of Economics, and ITMO University has second place.
