The agreement encompasses:

  • Taaleem staff and parents are offered a 30% discount for Bachelors and Masters degrees over the full duration of study. 

Alan Williamson, CEO of Taaleem, commented:

“In light of current global uncertainties, our parents and graduating students are naturally reconsidering the location for their future higher education. Therefore, we are delighted to announce our exclusive partnership with UOWD, ranked in the top 250 universities globally. This partnership will provide the option of a locally based, world class education for our graduates during these times of international uncertainty and insecurity. Recognised for their 27-year history of academic excellence in the UAE, UOWD is a pioneer in the regional higher education landscape. This partnership, offers to the Taaleem family, a locally based, affordable and outstanding Australian-based higher education that is UAE certified and globally recognised.”

Professor Mohamed Salem, President of University of Wollongong in Dubai added: 

Professor Mohammed Salem, President of UOWD, said: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Taaleem family of schools to work with them in supporting the student community.  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.”
