IUMS ranks among the world’s top universities in Times Higher Education (2022)
 
“From 1,600 universities from 90 countries, Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS) ranked 501-600 internationally and 5th in the nation according to Times Higher Education (THE) ranking & accreditation agency (2022),” noted Dr. Aghaei, the Director of Accreditation and Ranking at the University’s International Affairs Office. For the 4th consecutive year, IUMS also ranked 3rd among the top medical science universities in the country.
 
He explained that THE is one of the most comprehensive and credible international ranking systems for universities around the world which provides a wide and balanced range of performance indicators, covering the main objectives/missions of academic institutions in five global areas, including, education, research, citations, knowledge transfer, and international perspectives.
 
This achievement is especially notable since Iranian universities have played a more active role in the international arena since 2012; such that in 2022, Iran had the highest number of universities (58) among 26 Middle Eastern countries, followed by Turkey with 54 and Egypt with 23 eligible universities to be assessed and ranked by THE.
