Established in 2013, Al Falah University (AFU) opened its doors for its first batch of students in 2015. The university, located in the heart of the Emirate of Dubai, is determined to become one of the nation's leading institutions of higher education. AFU offers a teaching and learning environment generated by a distinguished academic cadre, supported by best practice educational and communications technology, as well as library resources. In this exemplary educational environment, students will be motivated to understand disciplinary concepts, tools, and data that will prepare them for pursuing more advanced education, or enhancing their professional skills for productive careers which contribute to further national and regional development.
Our University's current academic programs in the College of Business Administration, the College of Law, the College of Mass Communication and the College of Arts and Humanities have been selected based on established demand from students, the availability of exceptional faculty members with the ability to link theory with practice in their research-led teaching, and the needs of the nation's public and private sectors for graduates in these disciplines.
Students who are enrolled and registered in our University will also be engaged in inter-disciplinary learning and will learn to practice critical thinking skills, based on independent learning outside of their class discussions. Our students are exposed to knowledge application through oriented research by college faculty members. Our students take part of programs of national and international collaboration intended to enrich their education.
Al Falah University will seek to develop further educational opportunities for students in additional Colleges, in due course, based upon our five-year strategic plan, driven, in part, by continuing market research that provides information concerning evolving higher education needs.
