Two Saudi universities are among those an American publishing company considers the 100 best universities in the world, and two Egyptian universities are among the top 10 in Africa.
Those results are from the “2022 Best Global Universities Rankings”, released by “U.S. News & World Report” in late October.
The rankings compare 1,750 institutions of higher education in 91 countries.
The two highest placed universities in the Middle East are King Abdulaziz University, in Jeddah, which is ranked No. 44 globally, and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, in Thuwal, No. 97.
No universities in Africa were included among the top 100 globally, but two in Egypt, Cairo University and Mansoura University, won places in the continent’s top 10.
