“Innovation is my passion.”  

"Innovation is my passion. I joined ADU in August 2016 and was instrumental in the development of the later stages of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation program. I launched ADU’s Innovation Center early in 2018 and have previously been involved in innovation and technology management in numerous large scale European and corporate research projects.  

My international experience means that I am able to develop courses and concepts to international standards. I’m excited to be working with ADU at a time when they are advancing all their programs to embrace 21st century skills and with a focus on innovation and creativity.”

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.
