International rankings[edit]

These are the universities' rankings in 2015 according to THE (Times Higher Education) and QS (Quacquarelli Symonds).[9]

These rankings are now out of date and do not include the THE 2016 or 2017 updates.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.
