UD opens registrations for Fall
Dubai, July 6, 2011
The University of Dubai (UD) is now accepting registration for Fall Semester of the academic year 2011/2012 and admission will be limited to 200 students only.
UD will accept registration and admission for secondary school graduates only to maintain the institution’s high quality education standards, a statement said.
UD is the first private university in the UAE recognized by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and its degree programs are accredited by two distinguished international accreditations such as the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), the statement added.
“We are the only university in the UAE that requires our students to have a 2.25 GPA to graduate. This has a strong emphasis from the employers’ side as we believe that quality education affects performance at the work place,” said Dr Omar Hefni, UD President.
“The academic programmes of our schools provide students an opportunity to pursue the benefits of the best quality education and hands-on skills. We have improved our curriculum to meet labor market needs and in turn provide our students with opportunity to get jobs.”
“Being part of the Dubai Chamber provides our students internship opportunities locally and internationally as well as provides us with access to the organizations in the business community that represents the membership of the Chamber,” he added.
UD’s Fall Semester will start on September 10. – TradeArabia News Service
