The mission of Al Quds University is to equip students with the necessary tools to overcome overwhelming challenges and to shape a successful future. This is made possible through the promotion of academic research and professional excellence.

Principles and Values

  • Professionalism:  Undertaking projects in a responsible manner and maintaining the standards of professionalism by enriching our skills in the fields of teaching, research and business.

  • Equality and Diversity: Promoting equal opportunities for all students and faculty by creating a platform for exchange of ideas, freedom of expression and knowledge sharing.

  • Access to Education: Here, in Al Quds University we firmly believe that education is a basic human right that should be exercised by all those who wish to pursue a higher education. Al Quds University is aiming to equip Palestinian youth with the best possible education and to promote student employability.

  • Promotion of Peace: The University is promoting democratic values, dialogue and peace by ‘giving voice’ to students and the international community to share their thoughts by participating in project work, summer courses and lectures.

Al-Quds University also aims at the development of a multi-cultural mindset to go with the current reality of the political and socio-economical situation in Jerusalem, since Jerusalem's unique constitution as a mosaic cross-road of different nations, cultures and religions, giving special emphasis on introducing students especially, but the University community as a whole, to the multi-cultured heritage of human civilization. This is achieved in a number of ways, whether through special courses in human civilizations or human rights, international cooperation, joint educational projects involving faculty and students, lectures and events, foreign scholarships and exchanges. The student is thus encouraged to develop a worldly outlook, an appreciation of and tolerance for the other, and a humanist moral code.

Al-Quds University has the honor of being the largest Arab institution in the occupied city of Jerusalem. More than 13,000 students attend its colleges and centers that are neighboring Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the resurrection in the old town of Jerusalem.
