Overview

Ajman University (AU) has been at the forefront of U.A.E. education since opening as the first private university in the Gulf region 32 years ago. With the recent addition of College of Medicine, the landmark institution now encompasses 9 colleges offering 22 undergraduate and 14 graduate programs. AU’s programs are accredited by the UAE’s Ministry of Education. Additionally, a number of AU programs have obtained international accreditation while some others are in the process of obtaining international accreditation. In 2020, AU became one of the first six higher education institutions in the world to receive global accreditation from the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), the UK’s independent body and a global leader in quality assurance for higher education.

AU’s rich mix of international faculty and students – from 35 and 72 diverse nationalities, respectively – are the cornerstones of AU’s environment of innovation, excellence and social responsibility. AU aims to be internationally recognized as one of the leading universities in the Arab world. 

At Ajman University, being socially responsible is part of the collective DNA.  Students here show great passion for their studies and deep compassion toward society. They have many opportunities to share what they’ve learned in classrooms with the community at large. Each semester, volunteer groups visit places like Nepal and Zanzibar to provide their services – from health care to language instruction. Locally, more than 500 dental patients are served each day at AU’s free dental clinic on campus. And, with the recent addition of a mobile dental unit, dentistry services are now available to those who lack transportation.

Since 1988, AU has graduated more than 38,000 students who hail from 84 nations. Working in a variety of professions – from dentistry to information technology; pharmacy to law; mass communication to business administration – AU alumni now comprise 15 alumni chapters around the globe.
