“This continuous and impressive rise in rankings despite the global pandemic reflects the endless support and patronage of both His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman and His Highness Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Ajman University. This achievement couldn’t happen without the hard work and dedication to excellence of the AU faculty, staff and not the least, of our talented students. Ajman University has been steadfast in its commitment to continuous improvement in the quality of education we deliver, besides providing an enabling environment for innovation and high-quality research that ultimately benefits the region and the larger global society that we operate in,” said AU Chancellor Dr Karim Seghir, reflecting on AU’s strong performance in the QS Arab Rankings 2022.

AU’s meteoric rise in the QS Arab rankings has been made possible by its diverse international faculty drawn from over 40 countries and student cohorts that represent over 70 countries globally. Despite its proud Arab roots, the University provides an enabling environment for students of all nationalities to thrive and succeed in a dynamic academic milieu that blends the best of the local and global academic practices.

Initiated in 2014, the QS Arab University Rankings rank universities in the region on a rigorous set of parameters, including academic and employer reputation, faculty-student ratio, research impact and other key indicators of academic excellence.
