“The international accreditations were the deal-maker.”

"I’d heard a lot of good things about ADU but, for me, the international accreditations were the deal-maker. I’m intending to emigrate to Australia so it is very important that my postgraduate qualification is recognized globally and ADU’s WASC and ABET credentials ensure this is the case.

I’d recommend ADU to anyone. The quality of teaching is high, the lab facilities are great and – something that has helped me enormously – they have a generous research fund which is so important for postgraduate studies."

Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.

The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.

Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
