The uniRank web portal, which represents the non-academic ranking of higher education institutions in the world, based on the popularity of their official websites, has published the Ukrainian university ranking for 2019. According to this rating, Zaporizhzhia National University this year took the 20th place.

The main goal is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Public Ukrainian Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
According to this ranking, HEI have to meet the following uniRank selection criteria: being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate Ukrainian higher education-related organization; offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees); delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format.
It should be noted that the uniRank University Ranking, formerly known as 4ICU, positions itself as a non-academic rating, explores the presentation quality and popularity of universities in the Internet space based on independent webometric indicators collected from reputable sources (Moz, Majestic, SimilarWeb and Amazon Alexa). The authors of the ranking note that this approach is designed to help students, prifessors and scientists to assess the overall popularity of the university. Ranking indicators are: the level of attendance at the university site, the number of active pages, the flow metrics, the number of unique visitors, page views on the university website from mobile devices and users' PCs.
