The university offers English-taught undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programmes within social sciences, business studies, arts and humanities, science, technology, health care and environmental assessment. RUC is ranked in the prestigious Times Higher Education World University Rankings, and gains a notable mention by QS World University Rankings for the subject categories of “Politics & International Studies” and “Communication & Media Studies”.
