“ADU gives you a true return on your investment.”

"To be honest, I didn’t really know much about ADU until a friend asked me to attend an Open Day with her. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful that it just felt like the right fit for me from the start. I also took into account the national and international accreditations and the cost of the program too. Compared to some other universities, I believe ADU gives you a true return on your investment – the cost doesn’t break the bank and you actually get a lot more than what you pay for in my opinion.

I loved the professors and have stayed in touch with many of them. The faculty are so diverse – not just ethnically but also in terms of their professional and educational backgrounds. This diversity has a really positive effect on the quality of the teaching and learning experience."

Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.

The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered. 

Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
