In line with our Student First approach, we have a state-of-the-art Academic Success Center at our Abu Dhabi campus. The center, which was developed by the University College, equips students with a robust set of smart learning strategies designed to help them excel in their academic careers. Comprising modern study spaces, multi-purpose spaces, custom built-in technology and services, the center is intended to help students discover new ways to study effectively, learn efficiently and achieve academic success.
The center’s space supports both collaborative and individual learning styles. It is set to host a wide variety of activities throughout the academic year to engage students and support them in achieving their full potential through independent study, tutoring, academic and skill building workshops, in addition to competitions and challenges. These sessions will help students improve essential skills including time management, goal setting, organization, and multitasking.
Everything from the spatial design to the use of technology and resources has been developed with the explicit purpose of enhancing learning and driving academic excellence. We plan to utilize the space hosting events, workshops and mentoring sessions that will focus on developing soft skills not taught in the classroom.
The Academic Success Center is open to all Abu Dhabi University students from Sunday to Thursday from 9am to 8pm.
