UOWD’s curriculum and teaching practices reflect those of UOW Australia, which ranks among the top 2% of universities worldwide. The institution offers 45 programs including foundation courses and undergraduate and post-graduate degrees spanning 10 industry sectors, such as engineering, business, ICT, communications and media.  These degrees are formally recognised by leading professional organisations such as ACCA, CPA, AHRI, CIM, CIMA, CIPS, EFQM and ACS.

UOWD offers international students the opportunity to transfer between the university’s campuses for a holistic global higher education experience, and degrees can either be issued from Australia or the UAE.

As part of its continued pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, industry engagement and student experience, UOWD will inaugurate its new purpose-built 200,000-square-foot campus at Dubai Knowledge Park in 2020. Featuring cutting-edge technologies, modern architecture, and a mix of traditional and innovative learning spaces, the campus will provide an enriched experience to meet the demands of today’s student population, while supporting the teaching staff and community research projects.
