ADU is fun, educational and very inspiring, depending on your outlook each day. You’ll have a unique opportunity to meet some great friends, learn with highly qualified teachers and have lucrative job options once you’re done. Abu Dhabi University’s name carries a lot of credibility and recognition within Abu Dhabi and the UAE. I’m a proud ADU alumni but continue to visit occasionally to spend time at the library.Ayesha BCms January, 2013

With Abu Dhabi Univ. you really get out of it what you put into it. The school provides you with the tools to succeed and have a great college experience but it’s really up to you to utilize those tools and make it happen.Ruba February, 2011
Abu Dhabi University accomplished in 6 yeas what other Universities may take forever to accomplish. Students, faculties, and stuffs are all one big family under one roof.
As a third year students in ADU, I am proud to stand and say joining ADU was the best decision I made, and I pity others who couldn’t
ADU is the best uni in Abu Dhabi at least, and one of the best 5 universities in UAE.. It merges the fun and education together, so students are involved with all activities in the university. I’m proud to be an ADU student.Shadi Kabbesh December, 2010
My only regret with ADU is that I didn’t join sooner. Started of at Sorbonne Abu Dhabi and left after a year as their academic focus differed from my ambitions for Business, Entrepreneurship and Islamic Banking. ADU however is beyond what i expected. With their ideal location, amazing faculty and proactive attempts to help students get internships – i feel another 2 years of my life are going to be well spent here.AT January, 2010
