ADU is committed to providing clear and consistent information to students about our fees and our financial policies. As such, the following section provides details on the following areas:
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.
Costs of books and supplies are not included in the tuition and fees. Students at ADU 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.
Starting from 1 January 2018, the UAE Government has introduced Value Added Tax (VAT) at a standard rate of 5% applicable to most goods and services in the UAE. ADU is complying with this Government mandate and from 1 January, the standard VAT rate of 5% applies to our products and services.
Fees are subject to change during the year as per government charges and testing bodies.
