Established in 1988 as the first private university in the GCC, Ajman University (AU) has grown into a diverse, globally accredited institution of excellence. Since its debut in QS Rankings in 2018, it has risen an incredible 300+ places to rank among the Top 700 institutions worldwide.
AU was the first university in the UAE to admit expatriate students. Since then, our institution continues to be a pioneer for inclusion, innovation, and social impact. In the QS Arab Region Rankings 2023, AU was ranked #27 overall, and #1 for both international students and faculty. Creating stellar employment outcomes for its students after graduation, AU is also ranked second best in the UAE among private universities and third best among all UAE-based universities for employer reputation as per QS.
Each of AU’s 22 undergraduate and 13 graduate programmes offer academic rigour as well as hands-on experience. Our 9 colleges are focused on putting imaginations into action for the greater good. Our multinational faculty are experts in their fields, with ever-increasing research capacity. In addition to conferring valuable degrees that lead to meaningful careers, we believe our role is to foster every student’s innate sense of curiosity and to inspire lifelong learning.
Our global network of 39,000+ alumni since inception is inventing the future right now. AU is a global university in a local community with constant mobility! Our diverse and inclusive cohort of students and faculty travel across the UAE – and around the world – to learn, teach, and make a positive impact. What sets us apart from other institutions is this unique culture of innovation and compassion.
We make a difference with our hearts as well as our minds. Our motto is 'Make it Happen' and we deliver on that message every day!
