The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) is one of the UAE's oldest and most prestigious universities. Established in 1993 by the University of Wollongong in Australia - currently ranked amongst the leading universities in the world – UOW in Dubai represents a pioneering Australian initiative in the Gulf region.
From humble beginnings opposite Al Mulla Plaza, through the landmark presence on Jumeirah Road, to our current location at Dubai Knowledge Village, UOWD has become recognised as an integral part of Dubai’s academic landscape.
Internationally Accredited University in Dubai
All UOWD academic programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and quality assured by the University of Wollongong in Australia, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the national regulator of the higher education sector in Australia. UOW Australia has achieved an outstanding 30 out of a possible 30 stars in the six key educational experience categories assessed by the Good Universities Guide 2016. Against this benchmark, students at UOWD can be assured an international standard of education, earning a degree that is recognised locally and can be transferred to an Australian qualification on completion of study.
The University's faculties are operated by locally and internationally recruited academics, with extensive teaching, business and industry experience. They bring to the classroom a wealth of knowledge gained from research and professional practice in their respective fields, providing students with a stimulating, multi-dimensional academic environment. Classes are small in student numbers, allowing the Lecturers to cater to individual learning needs.
UOWD is an ideal choice for overseas students looking for an internationally accredited degree, close to home. Tuition and living costs are lower than comparative programs of study in the US or UK and international, non-resident students can benefit from a simplified visa application process. Our internationally recognised qualifications enable UOWD graduates to pursue rewarding careers and our 8,500 alumni include many high profile graduates in senior positions in public and private sectors across the region.
