The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) is one of the UAE’s oldest and most prestigious universities. Established in 1993 by the University of Wollongong in Australia – currently ranked amongst the leading universities in the world – UOW in Dubai represents a pioneering Australian initiative in the Gulf region. From humble beginnings opposite Al Mulla Plaza, through the landmark presence on Jumeirah Road, to our current location at Dubai Knowledge Village, UOWD has become recognised as an integral part of Dubai’s academic landscape.
The University’s faculties are operated by locally and internationally recruited academics, with extensive teaching, business and industry experience. They bring to the classroom a wealth of knowledge gained from research and professional practice in their respective fields, providing students with a stimulating, multi-dimensional academic environment. Classes are small in student numbers, allowing the Lecturers to cater to individual learning needs.
The School is Located in Blocks 5, 14 & 15, Al Sufouh Street, Dubai Knowledge Village – Dubai
