Canadian University Dubai
Canadian University Dubai (CUD) was established in 2006 to deliver outstanding academic programs based on Canadian curriculum and education principles, and to provide a gateway for students to pursue higher education, research and employment opportunities in Canada.
CUD has now grown to become an institution renowned for academic excellence; a University where students can gain a world-class education in the heart of a world-renowned city. With a wide range of programs across disciplines in Architecture & Interior Design, Communication, Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and Management, students benefit from an education ranked 42nd overall, 8th in the UAE and 2nd in Dubai, based on the 2019 QS Ranking for the Arab Region.
As the first accredited Canadian university outside of Canada, studying at CUD gives students the opportunity to obtain a Canadian education while experiencing the unique culture and values of the United Arab Emirates. With over 100 different nationalities that call our University home, our diverse student community is building bridges across cultures and continents in one of the world’s most dynamic cities.
Our goal is to move each individual forward as a well-rounded, lifelong learner and a good global citizen. To achieve this, emphasis is placed not just on academic achievement, but also on extracurricular involvement. Our vibrant student life provides something for everybody, from sports to concerts, and various academic and recreational clubs. Students are also involved in many different types of social activities, including community fundraising, team building, and networking events.
