Therefore, we are delighted to announce our exclusive partnership with UOWD, ranked in the top 250 universities globally. This partnership will provide the option of a locally based, world class education for our graduates during these times of international uncertainty and insecurity. Recognised for their 27-year history of academic excellence in the UAE, UOWD is a pioneer in the regional higher education landscape. This partnership, offers to the Taaleem family, a locally based, affordable and outstanding Australian-based higher education that is UAE certified and globally recognised.”

Professor Mohamed Salem, President of University of Wollongong in Dubai added:
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Taaleem family of schools and look forward to working with them in supporting the student community. Since its inception in 2004, Taaleem has built a strong reputation within the UAE on their commitment to providing world-class education to their students.”

“We understand that the current environment has caused shifts within the international higher education landscape, where many students who were hoping to study abroad may not now have the possibility to do so. Our number one priority is supporting the UAE’s domestic education sector by ensuring that students are able to receive an accredited Australian degree from a leading university in the UAE. As a member of the University of Wollongong global network, UOWD offers students who want to continue studying abroad, great opportunities to do so in any of our campuses in Australia, Hong Kong and Malaysia, once travel moratoriums are lifted.”
