Top 200 Arabic-speaking Universities

2021 World University Ranking New

Introduction

What are the most popular Arabic-speaking Universities in the world? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 World University Ranking of the top 200 recognized Arabic-speaking higher-education institutions in the world meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country
  • 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 200 Arabic-speaking Universities in the world based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
