Since its inception in 2004, Taaleem has built a strong reputation within the UAE on their commitment to providing world-class education to their students from K12 all the way up to secondary school.”
“We understand that the current environment has caused shifts within the educational sector and that many students who were hoping to study abroad have reevaluated their options. However, at UOWD, our number one priority has always been to support the domestic education sector by ensuring that our students receive quality education. Our degrees are accredited, both in Australia as well as by the UAE Commission for Academic Accreditation, giving students a myriad of opportunities for future studies. Additionally, UOWD’s international network in Australia, Hong Kong and Malaysia gives students the option of studying abroad at a later stage in their studies in their educational journey with us.”
