Abu Dhabi University lands spot in prestigious world ranking

Abu Dhabi University (ADU), made the ranks of the world’s “Top 150 under 50” of the prestigious Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings for 2018, as reported by Emirates News Agency WAM.

ADU is currently internationally acclaimed for its quality education, cutting-edge research and community involvement, all woven into the university fabric.

These have contributed towards placing it 16th among the best private universities in the world.

A sense of pride

ADU is a young university, established only 15 years ago.

Ali Saeed Bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, Chairman of ADU’s Executive Board, says: “We are proud to receive this prestigious recognition of our world-class academic offerings. These achievements are yet another testament to the quality of higher education in the United Arab Emirates, which is a source of pride for us all and a strong indicator that ADU is on the right track.”

“Inspired by this achievement, we will continue our quest for excellence and global recognition with a renewed sense of responsibility and purpose,” he adds.

Bin Harmal went on to explain that the University’s efforts to create an environment that embraces progress and innovation align with the vision and ambition of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region and President of ADU’s Board of Regents, to establish ADU as a center of intellectual creativity.

Credible ranking

The QS World University Rankings are an annual publication of university rankings by international higher education network Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). It is the only international ranking to have received an International Ranking Expert Group (IREG) approval and is viewed as one of the most widely read of its kind.
