“We are now broadening our academic offer to prospective students for 2019 and believe that our additional programmes of study will help to attract the brightest and most inquiring minds to embark upon their academic journey with the University of Birmingham Dubai.

“As a global university with a civic outlook, we are committed to contributing to UAE society and playing our part in supporting the UAE as it drives economic progress through knowledge and innovation, whilst contributing to the development of a growing international education hub in Dubai.”

The University of Birmingham Dubai opened its doors to students in September 2018, offering degrees that will be taught, examined and accredited to the same recognised high standards as those delivered on its UK campus.

It supports the UAE’s vision of developing a competitive economy driven by knowledge and innovation, as well as Dubai’s goal of building an international education hub.

The University of Birmingham Dubai is located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), a leading international education hub with 26 universities. 

With a strong tradition of teaching excellence, commended by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) in 2016, degrees at the University of Birmingham Dubai are taught, examined and accredited to the same recognised high standards as those delivered on the University’s UK campus in Birmingham.
