​​​​​​​​​​Dear All,

​It is important to know that Effat University, in its current fifth strategic plan (2022-2027), is reaping the fruits of its earlier four strategic plans and is continuing its journey towards achieving educational excellence and intellectual contribution, giving more attention to digitalization and innovation for achieving a more profound societal impact. The Deanship of Quality Assurance (DQA) fully supports this aspiration by fostering a culture of excellence in offering blended education, encouraging research that re-generates and innovates learning, as well as forging impactful connections with the wider community at large. In the last ten years, this strong culture of excellence was reflected through the acquisition of national and international accreditation by the university and all its programs. Concerning national accreditation, Effat University achieved full-accreditation up to 2024, and its bachelor and master programs achieved accreditation up to 2028 (Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cinematic Arts and Master of Urban Design), 2027 (Master of Translation and Interpreting and Master of Finance), 2025 (Design), 2024 (English &Translation, Psychology, Computer Science and Architecture) and 2022 (All Effat College of Business Bachelor and Master Programs). The bachelor programs of the College of Engineering achieved ABET re-accreditation up to 2029 in 2023, the Bachelor of Science in Architecture achieved NAAB up to 2025, and in 2022 all the programs of Effat College of Business achieved AACSB accreditation up to 2026, and Effat University became internationally eligible for NECHE accreditation in Spring 2022.

Effat University remains one of the top 100 Arab Universities by QS and THE. It also achieved the position of 32 in the Arab Ranking of Universities in 2023.

With stronger roots based in its Core Values and with a desire to innovate and excel nationally and internationally, Effat University aspires in the coming few years to achieve its educational goals in providing on-line learning, obtain international accreditation for the institution and remaining programs, improve its ranking status and achieve subject ranking, increase the quantity and quality of its research contributions and enhance its relations with the wider community to achieve societal impact.

We are all proud to be part of this dynamic and quality-craving institution!
