The third edition of the QS University Rankings: Arab Region continue providing detailed insight into the region’s top universities as they attempt to increase their international profile, and the unique approach QS adopt for this region is designed to better illuminate the relative success of its universities in achieving this goal. To this end, three of the nine metrics used to compile this regional ranking take into account an institution’s success in internationalising. International student ratio and international faculty ratio assess the extent to which a nation’s universities are proving to be enticing destinations for students from afield. In similar vein, web impact – a metric used only for QS’s regional rankings – is designed to measure the extent to which a university is increasing its international profile.
