Zayed University- love the spirit, the people and the awesome new campus! I’m proud to have had the opportunity to study there and meet some amazing professors. Did my Masters last year and now trying to find any way of going back again, just miss the place so much. Truly an inspiring institution thanks to its leaders and their continuous support!Shamma Al O. January, 2013
Love my Alma matter! Have had the opportunity to earn a degree from this reputable institution, have made so many amazing friends along the way and will hopefully go back soon to do my Masters. Go ZU!Aida May, 2012
The best professors I’ve had have been at ZU, some very nurturing individuals here! It may be something others take for granted, but studying in an environment where you feel comfortable and part of a women’s only section; it really makes a world of difference when studies are your main priority. I’ve just toured the new campus and its breath-taking. Thanks to the visionary leaders of our great country for making Zayed University the great institution that it is. I’m due to graduate next year and hope my job prospects are a lot more favorable than they are now.Hind bint Abu Dhabi November, 2011
Let me first start off by saying, I did NOT want to go to ZU. My parents had forced me to go to this school to be close to home and as a result I hated it for the first year. I didn’t make an effort to make friends, i would only be on campus to go to class and I didn’t care too much for my grades. That all changed as I settled into my comfort zone and got to know the students, professors and enjoyed campus life. Its been a great 2 years for me, I’ve met so many open-minded, innovative and smart Emiratis here. If you focus on the details, you’d realize how hard they work to ensure the late Sheikh Zayed’s vision lives on. May Allah rest his soul. I love this place and cant wait to move to our new campus in a couple of months.Al Anoud April, 2011
Undoubtedly the best university in Abu Dhabi. They offer their students so much – both academically and professional development. They are also the most reputed college in the capital, hence our career counseling dept does a very good job at getting us students internships and full-time employment with major organizations.BG March, 2010
Academics are top-notch, as is to be expected. Fields of study and classes within those fields cover a broad range of topics and are taught by incredible professors, many of whom are leading figures in their fields. Class sizes are ideal. Moreover, professors always make extra effort to make themselves available to students and you can ALWAYS find one-on-one time with your professor. I admire Zayed University.Hala N November, 2009
