Cairo University maintains its position as one of the world’s best 500 universities in 2012, according to a report published by China’s Shanghai University on Friday.

The prestigious learning institution, which was founded in 1908, is the only Egyptian university that has made it into the top 500 and continues to hold its position between 401 - 500 in the global ratings.

"Having Cairo University among the 500 and upholding its position is a result of the efforts made by the entire staff," Hossam Kamal, president of Cairo University told MENA Friday, adding that one of the main reasons the university did so well is because of key scientific research done by its professors.

Cairo University launched a scheme in 2008 which followed international standards and increased scientific research fellowships, staff motivation, international research collaborations and global visibility through publishing in international science publications.

It's a long, long way from the top to Cairo University
Having attended two of the universities in the top ten and enjoyed an excellent education, and seen my husband enroll and drop out of a masters degree program at Cairo University due to being in a department of professors who were completely dysfunctional in their relationship to one another, the administration and the students and deserved to have a legal case brought against them for gross academic incompetence and negligence, I can say that being in the top 500 is nothing to brag about and Cairo University should be ashamed of the education that it fails to deliver.

For the "AmericanMuse"
Type "Universities Worldwide" or univ.cc/world or ... or ... in your search box and you will find that there are much much much more than 500 universities only in the USA. Number of universities in some other countries: Australia/50; Brazil/159; Canad/144; China/375; Germany/280; India/317; Russia/303; Japan/183; UK/165. ;;;;;. Count the rest yourself. It means that many many of these thousands of the universities worldwide including many of the US and other Western countries could make the worldwide 500 top universities list.;;;; My Fellow American "AmericanMuse", Please learn some humility.
