List of universities and colleges in the United Arab Emirates

Higher education institutions in the United Arab Emirates need to be recognized by the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA), which is part of the Ministry of Education.[1] The Ministry of Education does not recognize educational institutions based in free zones. While individual Emirates are responsible for managing the standards of educational institutions within their free zones, Dubai is the only Emirate that does so through the Knowledge and Human Development Authority's University Quality Assurance International Board. Ras Al Khaimah is currently working on tightening rules and regulations that govern higher academic institutions in the Emirate.[2]

International rankings[edit]

These are the universities' rankings in 2015 according to THE (Times Higher Education) and QS (Quacquarelli Symonds).[6]

These rankings are now out of date and do not include the THE 2016 or 2017 updates. Definitions of categories used for measurement of both THE and QS are missing. It would be helpful if the UAE provided its own rankings according to its own measurement system. The Tuning Project 2000 is integrated in the THE rankings in order to accommodate local and cultural diversity and to ameliorate against rankings with 'Western' bias.

NR = no ranking

Institution 2015 (THE) 2015 (QS)
American University of Sharjah 601-800 411-420
United Arab Emirates University 501-600 421-430
Khalifa University - 481-490
American University in Dubai - 551-600
University of Sharjah - 601-650
Abu Dhabi University - 701+
