20 Years Of Success

Twenty years may not be considered long enough for an educational institution to become an icon in its field – and yet the University of Wollongong in Dubai has become just that.

In 2013 we celebrated two decades of innovation, initiative, enterprise and achievements that have marked our journey to success, most notably our capacity to reach out to a whole world of promising young minds seeking to acquire knowledge and experience. 

Established in 1993 by the University of Wollongong in Australia, UOWD 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 Park, UOWD has become recognised as an integral part of Dubai’s academic landscape.
