About The British University in Dubai

The British University in Dubai (BUiD) is a not-for-profit institution, established in 2003 by the Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to be the region’s leading research-based university, facilitating excellent teaching and training based on the British model of higher education.

BUiD is a pioneering institution in promoting and developing a high level of research linked to the UAE’s knowledge-based economy and the needs of the GCC region. Many of our students contribute by presenting their research in international conferences and publishing it in leading global academic journals.

At The British University in Dubai we are proud to be top for research criteria in the QS Arab Region 2021 ranking. BUiD is ranked first for number of papers per faculty and third for citations per papers. For more than 15 years, we’ve focused on research; now, our efforts are rewarded.

The UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs licenses BUiD to award its own degrees.  BUiD’s qualifications are also recognised internationally by UK NARIC, the UK’s agency for recognising international qualifications and skills.  BUiD’s internal quality assurance include processes that ensure our programmes and students’ achievements are of standards on a par with those of our UK Universities Alliance partners (the University of Edinburgh, the University of Glasgow, and the University of Manchester).
