Bedër University (BU) (Albanian: Universiteti Hëna e Plotë) is a private non-profit[5][6] university in Tirana, Albania. It was established in 2011[7] by the Muslim Community of Albania, thus completing the education cycle started with the reopening of the madrasas in 1991.[8][9]

At the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities,[10] Beder University is ranked as the fifth university in Albania.

BU is a coed institution. It offers Bachelor, Master of Science and Professional master's degrees in English and Albanian.[11] Two bachelor programs are 100% English. On June 3 of 2013 Beder signed a Memorandum of Understanding with University of Tirana.[12] They have started the construction of their modern campus in Sauk.[13]

The name of Bedër University is either derived from the Arabic word Badr which translates to "full moon" (بدر ) or named after the Battle of Badr. The Albanian name is Universiteti Hëna e Plotë.

The current rector is Ferdinand Gjana.[14]
