25 Years of Academic Excellence
In 2018, UOWD celebrated its Silver Jubilee year, marking the 25th anniversary of the University’s establishment in the UAE.
It was in 1993 that the University of Wollongong started out on a transformational journey to bring Australian higher education to Dubai, and in doing so, established the very first international university campus in the Emirates.
In commemorating 25 years of academic excellence in the UAE, we also look to the future with ambition and confidence. We embrace the principles of innovation, empowerment and transformation, which are the foundations that the institution was built upon.
Our 25th anniversary has been a celebration of all that we have done and continue to do to unlock potential, transform lives, and empower people and communities for an innovative and transformational tomorrow.
