“They are making us proud to say we are an ADU student.”
"ADU was the obvious choice for me as I was able to study the complete BBA program in Al Ain. The accreditations the University has earned have really raised the profile of ADU - I’ve seen so many developments over the past few years and they are making us proud to say we are an ADU student.
I had an epiphany in my first few years at ADU! I saw my friends being recognized in appreciation ceremonies and thought ‘what do they have that I don’t?’ I quickly realized the answer was ‘high grades!’ This gave me the wake-up call I needed and I started working hard and increased my GPA to 3.5, graduating with distinction. This was a simple but valuable life lesson for me – working hard brings results. I thank my professors for leading me along this path. I’m working really hard on my Master’s now."
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.
