The University of Baghdad (UOB) (Arabic: J?mi'at Baghd?d) is the largest university in Iraq and the second largest in the Arab world, behind the University of Cairo.[1]

Nomenclature

Both University of Baghdad and Baghdad University are used interchangeably.

History

The College of Islamic Sciences claims that it originated in 1067 A.D. as Abu-Haneefa.[2] However, the College of Law, the earliest of the modern institutions that were to become the first constituent Colleges (i.e. Faculties) of the University of Baghdad, was founded in 1908.[3] The College of Engineering was established in 1921; the Higher Teachers Training College and the Lower College of Education in 1923, the College of Medicine in 1927, and the College of Pharmacy in 1936. In 1942, the first higher institution for girls, Queen Alia College, was established. In 1943, proposals for further new Colleges appeared, leading to the foundation of the College of Arts and the College of Science in 1949, and Abu Ghraib College of Agriculture in 1950.

In September 2018, the university was listed in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, a yearly classification of the best 1,250 universities in the world, for the first time.[4]
