Kyiv Polytechnic Institute

Education is a large part of Ukrainian ladies' lives and for the first time, two of the country's universities have been recognized as the world's best.


According to the Kyiv Post, QS World University Rankings has placed Donetsk National University and National Technical University of Ukraine, better known as Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, in the top 700 universities out of 2,919.


The two schools are among 18 new entries from Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.


"Being in the top 4 percent of the world universities is not too bad after all," said QS Regional Director Zoya Zaitseva, referring to the fact the top 700 universities are chosen out of an estimated 20,000 universities worldwide.


Moscow State University remains the best performing college in Central and Eastern Europe, although this year it fell outside the top 100. The University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom was named number one, while Harvard, MIT, and Yale in the United States followed close behind. The University of Oxford rounded out the top five.


Ukraine’s strong results are largely due to the positive student / professor ratio. 


"We are happy that we've broken through the blockade," said Sergei Shukaey, head of the foreign projects department at KPI. "Our rector set the goal, so we gained it."


Do you know any hot Russian brides who attend these schools? Send them some congratulations!
