BEIRUT: Lebanese universities put in yet another respectable performance in the latest edition of the prestigious QS higher education ranking in the Arab world, with three schools cracking the top 25. 

The American University of Beirut came in second, the Lebanese American University in 16th place, while Saint Joseph University took the 20th spot. 

While the Lebanese American University maintained its position, the American University of Beirut and Saint Joseph University suffered slippage compared to 2018, dropping one and eights spots respectively. 

The QS world ranking is generally viewed as the most methodologically sound of the various international league tables, which have increased in recent years as universities battle it out to attract students and staff.

The Lebanese University dropped in one place, coming in at 26th place while Balamand dropped six. 

Meanwhile, Notre Dame University managed to climb four places compared to last year, picking up the 34th position.
