UOWD have combined the academic excellence of Australia’s 12th highest ranking university with the culture and excitement of the cosmopolitan city of Dubai, to provide a dynamic, stimulating and rewarding environment for students, research practitioners and business professionals alike. At the same time, they are active contributors to the burgeoning knowledge economy of the UAE.
Their student-centred approach to learning ensures that our graduates go out into the world armed with much more than technical knowledge and an outstanding educational experience. They also have professional skills in research, analysis, entrepreneurship, problem-solving and communication. This sets them apart from their peers across other institutions and explains why so many of our graduates now have senior, responsible and exciting positions in a range of prestigious organisations, both in the UAE and around the world.
