Established in 1985, the University has since produced graduates with transdiciplinary knowledge and skills.

The Universiti Brunei Darussalam is guided by its four core values; people, expertise, relevance and leadership. These values are used as yardsticks in the development and running of eight academic faculties, eight research institutes and two support centres ranging from Islamic Studies, Business, Arts, Science, Health Sciences, Asian Studies, Policy Studies, Education, Biodiversity and Integrated Technologies.

In a relatively short period of time, UBD has advanced and expanded both in academics and infrastructure, producing influential leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals.

Universiti Brunei Darussalam continues to be one of the leading higher education institution in Brunei Darussalam.

UBD entered the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for the very first time this year with a global position in the 401 to 500 band. This makes UBD the fourth ranked university in ASEAN in one of the most influential university rankings in the world, confirming its status as an institution that is internationally recognised for excellence in teaching and research.

The university is ranked in multiple categories including 1st in outbound and in inbound student exchange, 13th in international faculty, 15th in faculty student ratio, and 23rd in international students in the 2019 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Asian University Rankings.

It is an achievement that is the product of constant and persistent collective effort from the academic and administrative sectors in the university, and funding agencies outside of the institution in ensuring first-class quality education for every student in the university.
