Top Private Universities in the United Arab Emirates


What are the top Private Universities in the United Arab Emirates? uniRank answers this question by publishing a complete list of Private Emirati Universities ranked by the 2024 uniRank University Ranking and meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Emirati higher education-related organization
  • offering at least three-year bachelor's degrees or postgraduate master's or doctoral degrees

uniRank aims to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Private 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.
