On June 9, the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) released the international ranking of the best universities.

The QS World University Rankings are among the three most objective and influential university rankings in the world, along with the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
The ranking is produced by Quacquarelli Symonds, a British company specializing in the analysis of higher education institutions. Every year, the company's experts assess higher education institutions using a methodology that consists of six key indicators, such as academic reputation of the university, university reputation among employers, the share of foreign faculty, the share of foreign students, student-to-faculty ratio and citation rate of scientific publications.
However, it is worth noting the increasing competition in the ranking, as every year the number of participants increases and the global average rises. For example, there were 900 participating universities in QS 2016 compared to nearly 1,700 in QS 2022. The first place in the QS WUR 2022 ranking is traditionally held by MIT.

Among Kazakhstan's higher education institutions, the top places are taken by multidisciplinary universities - Al-Farabi Kazakh National University and Gumilyov Eurasian National University, and Auezov South Kazakhstan State University. Satbayev University, Kazakhstan's first technical university, ranks right behind them.
The high level of education and active innovative work allows Satbayev University to maintain its status as the best technical university in the country every year.
