Qatar University (QU) has been placed third in the QS Arab Region University Rankings 2021. This improvement allows QU to be on the podium for the first time, achieving 3rd place.

The annual QS Arab Region University Rankings highlights 130 leading universities in this part of the world.

The methodology for this ranking was developed with the aim of reflecting specific challenges and priorities for institutions in the region, drawing on several indicators including international research network, papers per faculty and academic reputation.

President of QU Dr Hassan al-Derham commented on this achievement saying, “This is a proud moment for QU to be ranked as one of the top universities in Arab region, placing at 3rd on the QS Arab Region chart for the year 2021. QU has jumped 6 places since 2016. Qatar University’s five-year strategy for 2018-2022 defines ways to achieve continuous excellence in performance and construction in the main areas of education, research, institution and participation, taking into account the plans and aspirations of Qatar National Vision 2030.”

This achievement consolidates QU’s recent achievement in the QS World University Ranking as the institution moved from 276 in 2020 to 245 in the 2021 ranking, effectively jumping 31 places, and becoming one of the most improved universities.

In 2017, QU released a five-year strategy for the years 2018-2022, which mapped out the routes to achieving continuing performance excellence and builds on key areas of education, research, institution and engagement, while taking into consideration the plans and aspirations of Qatar National Vision 2030.
