“I hope to leave my fingerprint on ADU.”  

“After several years working in different sectors, I realised that the field of law was my true passion.  After carrying out some research to find the best place to study for a Bachelor in Law, I came across Abu Dhabi University and was impressed with its accreditations and world rankings.  

In terms of my program, I’m receiving the highest standards of education: the facilities are great and the professors are incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. The co-curricular activities get students involved in so many seminars and conferences, giving you the opportunity for real-world application of what you’re learning on an on-going basis.”
