“We receive five star treatment from ADU.”

"Our professors are highly educated and extremely professional. They understand the demands of the education system in the UAE so are able to tailor the program accordingly.

As students, we receive five star treatment from ADU. Any queries we have are addressed immediately whether it be IT support related or issues related to payments. I can honestly say I feel like an important person for ADU, and not just a student number."

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.
