Top Universities in the United Arab Emirates


What are the most popular Universities in the United Arab Emirates? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 Emirati University Ranking of 63 Emirati higher-education institutions meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Emirati 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
Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Emirati Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
