The ranking is based on four pillars: research, teaching, employability and international outlook. The indicators that are used to determine each are academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, citations per faculty, international student ratio and international staff ratio. Each of these indicators weigh differently, as – for instance – academic reputation is weighed as 40% of the assessment, while international student ratio lies at only 5%.

According to QS University Rankings, Egypt’s top universities are:

1. American University in Cairo: Rank 360
Whereas the American University in Cairo (AUC) precedes the other universities in terms of employer situation, faculty/student ratio, international faculty and citations per faculty, it does not top the others in the remaining indicators.
