25 Years of Academic Excellence
UOWD has established itself as the University of Excellence.
Students at UOWD experience a premium-quality education built on 25 years of academic excellence in the UAE and a top 50 global institutional ranking. Our international community of nearly 150,000 graduates is ranked in the top 1% by employers worldwide.
Combining these rankings with our first-class international faculty and program accreditations from some of the world’s leading industry bodies, UOWD stands out as the university of 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.
