Tyumen region firmly established itself in the Top-20 ranking, measuring the quality of life across Russian regions
As of 2015, the Tyumen region took the 11th position in the interregional rating, measuring the quality of life. The result is three positions higher as compared to the previous achievement.
The rating was compiled by the experts of RIA Rating, a rating agency. They carried out an analysis, drawing on 73 indicators aggregated into 11 groups: the level of economic development, the income level, housing conditions, demographics, security, availability of various kinds of services, environmental and climatic conditions, health and education, level of small business’ development, development of the territory and transport infrastructure, employment and the labor market.
The experts highlight the absence of any significant changes to the positions of regions according to the quality of life.
With this in mind, ever more talented Russian school leavers tend to choose Tyumen universities as places to study. Last year, we had around 5000 new entrants at UT. Half of them are high school leavers arriving from 49 regions of Russia, as well as from other countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
