University Ranking (QS)
In 2019, the university maintained its excellence in research and teaching, and was ranked by QS World University Rankings – in their 2019 edition – in the 801-1000 range, which included universities from 85 countries. Birzeit University has retained its position as the top university in Palestine for the fifth consecutive year, and was ranked among the best 50 universities in the Arab region according to the 2019 QS Arab Region University Rankings. Only four Palestinian universities were included in the list.
In 2018, QS University Rankings featured the very first Palestinian university in its 2018 World Rankings, as Birzeit University outranked its national peers, ranked 38th in the Arab world, and broke into the top 3% of universities worldwide. This comes on the heels of QS choosing Birzeit University as one of the leading 100 Arab universities for the third time consecutively.
For the past four consecutive years, Birzeit University has been consistently ranked as one of the best 100 universities in the Arab world and the leading university in Palestine.
