The UAE Ministry of Education has released the Top Research Universities based on a recently released National Framework for the Classification of Higher Education Institutions. This framework, unveiled by Dr. Mohammad Al Mualla, Undersecretary for Higher Education Academic Affairs, aims to provide a locally relevant assessment of universities across the country.

International University Rankings

According to Gulf News reports, the framework takes into account regional priorities that might not be fully reflected in global rankings in order to especially address the UAE's educational environment. Although global rankings cover more than 1,500 colleges globally, Dr. Al Mualla found that they frequently ignore details that are crucial to the UAE's educational objectives.

According to Dr. Al Mualla, "the national framework focuses on the UAE's priorities," she said at a news conference in Dubai, as reported by GulfNews. "It offers a tailored approach to evaluating higher education institutions, taking into account factors that are crucial for students, parents, and employers in our nation."
