List of Universities in Saudi Arabia

Some days ago, someone asked me about the number of universities in Saudi Arabia. I was not able to answer him. I thought there would be around 10-15 universities in Saudi Arabia. I live in Jeddah and I know about only 4 universities here.

Well, I was wrong. The number of registered universities in Saudi Arabia is more than double of my expectation. Really, I am happy to know that there are more than 35 registered universities in Saudi Arabia.

Now the trend of youngsters is towards studies and I can see the future of Saudi Arabia is brighter than its present. They will be importing fewer expatriates from foreign countries since their own students are getting qualified.

Here I am sharing with you, the list of universities in Saudi Arabia along with their website.  I hope it will be helpful for you.
