One Moroccan University Only Among the World’s Top 800 Universities

The report said that Cadi Ayyad University in Marrakech was ranked somewhere between 601 and 800 in the world. Only the first 200 universities are given a specific rank; the others are only given a range.
Last year, Cadi Ayyad University ranked 301 in the same ranking, being the first Moroccan university to make it to the top 400 in the world.
Only one Moroccan university was ranked among the top 800 universities in the world, according to the 2015 World University Rankings, released by Higher Education Times in London on Wednesday.

To assess universities, the World University Ranking uses criteria such as the amount of published research and its influence in the academic world, the amount of the budget for research, and the number of international students enrolled in the Institution.
While Cadi Ayyad is the only North African university in the said ranking, the University of Cape Town, South Africa, is the highest ranked university in Africa, at 120.

Three Egyptian universities, Alexandria University, Cairo University, and Suez Canal University, are all on the list between 601 and 800.
