Small Class Sizes

At Alfaisal University, a majority of our classes have an impressively low student-teacher ratio of 18:1. Small class sizes and an inspiring and highly qualified teaching faculty ensure that students get the absolute most out of their courses. Teachers at the front of a small class have more opportunities to observe and assess the class as a whole and the students as individuals and with fewer students per class, individuals can connect more closely with their peers and become more confident and comfortable when it comes to sharing their ideas and perspectives. These connections lead to lasting friendships.


Centrally Located

The university is situated in austere grounds of the late King Faisal Palace in the heart of Riyadh, accessible to all major highways. Alfaisal University partner teaching hospital, KFSHRC is also located within walking distance. The modern state of the art university campus has been designed to accommodate up to 4000 students. It incorporates teaching buildings, student centers, conference halls, cafes, and upto 2500 underground car parking spaces.

Best Faculty

At Alfaisal University, we are aware that professors can be some of the most influential figures you will ever meet that is why our classes are taught by professors, not teaching assistants. Alfaisal University faculty are internationally acclaimed researchers and scholars. They have published extensively in their research areas and in the most reputable professional journals, because the majority of our classes average only 18 students, professors know you by name and have time to mentor and provide one-on-one guidance. Faculty can help connect you with research opportunities, internships, and jobs that are a good fit for you.
