International Students at UOWD: Study in Dubai, UAE

Location

United Arab Emirates: Dubai

Description

The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) is a unique institution combining the academic excellence of one of Australia's top ranking universities with the culture and excitement of the cosmopolitan city of Dubai.

UOWD is one of the United Arab Emirates' oldest and most prestigious universities. With over 4,000 students from more than 100 countries, taught by academics from over 35 countries, UOWD offers the best traditions of western education in a truly multicultural learning environment.

Degree programs are offered in specialist fields of Business and Management, Finance and Accounting, Computer Science and Engineering and Arts and Humanities. Postgraduate courses incorporate both taught and research-based studies, with two Doctoral programs offered in Business Administration and Philosophy. UOWD also has a dedicated Language Studies Centre offering language courses in English, Arabic and other languages. They range from English language study for University preparation to part time Arabic classes and English language teacher training.

UOWD is an ideal choice for overseas students looking for an internationally accredited degree, close to home. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the gateway between East and West, centrally located halfway between Europe and Asia, and with close proximity to other GCC and Middle East countries. Tuition and living costs are lower than comparative programs of study in the US, UK or Australia and UOWD can provide a simplified visa application process for international, non-resident students who would like to enrol in a full-time program of study.

All students have the option to exchange their UOWD degree for the equivalent UOW Australia degree on graduation and there are opportunities to undertake periods of study in Australia as part of the student exchange scheme.

All UOWDs academic programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and reviewed by the Australian Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency through their audit of the University of Wollongong Australia.

UOW Australia is the 12th highest ranked Australian University and has achieved five out of five stars in all six educational categories assessed by the Good Universities Guide 2013. Against this benchmark, students at UOWD can be assured an international standard of education, with excellent job prospects on graduation.

The University's faculties are operated by locally and internationally recruited academics, with extensive teaching, business and industry experience. They bring to the classroom a wealth of knowledge gained from research and professional practice in their respective fields, providing students with a stimulating, mulch-dimensional academic environment. Classes are small in student numbers, allowing the Lecturers to cater to individual learning needs.

The university's client-centered approach to learning ensures that graduates are armed with much more than technical knowledge and an outstanding educational experience. They also take away the professional skills and competencies to make a real difference in the workplace.
