Institution ranked 16th best private university globally 

Abu Dhabi-UAE: 9 September 2017:  Abu Dhabi University (ADU), achieved a new academic milestone by entering the ranks of the world's “Top 150 under 50” of the prestigious Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings for 2018.

Internationally recognized for quality education and applied research, ADU also placed 16th among best private universities in the world, adding to the young institutions’ repertoire of accolades, which is especially significant considering that ADU was only established 15 years ago. Since its inception, ADU has achieved a solid global academic standing through setting new standards of excellence in quality of teaching, cutting-edge scientific research, and community service.
Commenting on the significant achievement, H.E Ali Saeed Bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, Chairman of ADU’s Executive Board, said: “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 added: “Abu Dhabi University’s commitment to providing higher education that meets international standards is guided by the directives of our wise leadership represented by H.H Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President & Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, as well as Their Highnesses Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates”.

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 H.H 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. 

QS World University Rankings is an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).  It is the only international ranking to have received International Ranking Expert Group (IREG) approval and is viewed as one of the most widely read of its kind, along with Academic Ranking of World Universities and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
