Join us for the graduation ceremony 2022 on June 28th & 29th.
This past year, I completed the Postgraduate Professional Diploma in Education at Abu Dhabi University. The program provided me with the skills and knowledge to teach in both public and private schools in the UAE. The course places a huge emphasis on the practical skills required to teach effectively, such as lesson planning, classroom management strategies, and tailoring lessons based on different learning styles, to name but a few. It was an invaluable experience for me, and I have since been able to apply the aforementioned skills in my job as a Kindergarten teacher.
At ADU, I was very fortunate to have a team of dedicated and supportive professors around me who encouraged me each step of the way. They openly shared their past experiences to help guide their students towards becoming successful and thoughtful educators. Even during the pandemic, they quickly adapted to a new model of teaching and presenting lessons, with student participation and discussion at its core. It was a learning curve for all involved, but their commitment was impressive, and is the main reason I look back on my time at ADU so favorably.

“My daughter and I graduated at the same time.”
"I chose ADU as my daughter was studying for a BBA in Finance at the University. In fact, we graduated at the same time and it was a special moment receiving our awards together at the graduation ceremony.
The program opened my eyes to brand-new methods and tools that I can use in the classroom. Since graduating from the program, I have been given the position of lead teacher for KG and G1. In this role I enjoy using my new-found skills and new teaching strategies to support my colleagues in delivering a quality learning experience to their students."

As a Mass Communication student, I had the opportunity to learn the best practices in media production for various media platforms. I loved working with sophisticated equipment such as high-end cameras, lighting, vision mixers, and the audio console in the TV studio. The experience gave me the confidence to work at both front and back camera in television production. It was at Abu Dhabi University that I discovered my true potential and transformed myself into someone always ready to accept challenges. My parents were my motivation to succeed; my friends gave me the necessary support; my teachers provided the tools.
