Top Islamic Universities in the world

2020 EduListing University Ranking


What are the most popular Islamic Universities in the world? EduListing tries to answer this question by publishing the 2020 EduListing University Ranking of the top Islamic Universities in the world meeting the following EduListing selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Islamic Universities in the world based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
