Top Universities in Iraq


What are the most popular Universities in Iraq? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 Iraqi University Ranking of 64 Iraqi higher-education institutions meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Iraqi 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 Iraqi Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
