Top Buddhist Universities in the world

2021 uniRank University Ranking New

Introduction

What are the most popular Buddhist Universities in the world? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 uniRank University Ranking of the top Buddhist Universities 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 Buddhist 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.
