About Effat University

Effat University is the first non-profit private university for females in Saudi Arabia. It aims to inspire leaders of the future to become living ambassadors for the legacy of Queen Effat Al-Thunayan Al-Saud, her founder. The mission of the university is to prepare aspirational and effective leaders of international quality who contribute to national and global progress by interweaving Effat University Core Values into an innovative education which creates a culture of broad inquiry, intellectual engagement, and valuable societal impact.

In 1999, the university started offering its first academic programs in English under the name of Effat College. In January 2009, Effat College acquired University status as a private institution of higher education for women. Effat University has four colleges - Effat College of Business, Effat College of Architecture and Design, Effat College of Engineering, and Effat College of Science and Humanities. The four colleges house 13 undergraduate programs  and 4 master degrees.
