British Professors Visit University of Benghazi


Professors from Britain visited the University of Benghazi (UoB) at the initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) to take the final clinical part exams, which starts on Saturday and lasts for four days.

Zahia Elghazal, the Head of Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Faculty of Medicine, of the UoB said that the visiting professors will give scientific lectures to graduate students. She added that this visit will open the field for exchange of experiences between universities. She noted that this visit will improve the quality of academic and clinical performance for graduate students.

In June, 123 students from the cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Tobruk, Ajdabiya, Al-Marj, Al-Bayda and Derna applied for the first part exams as part of the requirements for a doctorate degree in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

UoB was ranked as the top Libyan university in the QS rankings of 2022.

Dr. Al-Darsi, received an invitation to participate in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) classification ceremony, between the 13th and 14th of October at Zayed University in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). This is issued by the British company QS, which originally published its rankings through the publications of Times Higher Education from 2004 to 2009 under the name ‘The World University Rankings by The Times Higher Education and QS.’

QS issues an annual report in which it ranks more than 30,000 universities around the world, according to academic and scientific standards. A comparison is made of the 500 largest universities, to issue a directory of universities, by relying on evaluation criteria that address the structure of each of these institutes.

The QS classification claims it does not deal with superficial indicators that may hide the more complex conditions within each university. Rather, it analyses various components to assess the level of education provided by the universities.

The classification also depends on the quality of the universities’ basic and applied research, and the description of the capabilities of their graduates in the basic educational stages. It also pays attention to the universities’ international stature.
