  • Sort by tel number to group universities in the same geographical area (first 2 or 3 digits after country and city code indicate area).
  • University directory finder includes UAE universities that offer UAE, UK, US, Australian, Canadian, Indian, and other foreign curriculums. In most cases, English is the medium of instruction.
UAE universities and colleges CAA inspections
  • Private universities and colleges in the UAE are inspected and accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA).
  • *Until 2013, federal public government universities and colleges in the UAE had been exempt from CAA inspections?

Fake degree scams in Dubai and UAE

See also list of accredited online universities UAE, and Dubai Online University (DOU).

  • A number of unversities and colleges based in the UAE will provide degrees upon payment of the fees but without requiring attendance or exam passes from enrolled students. Some of these institutes are allegedly accredited by the UAE MOHESR.
  • Prospective students should investigate carefully the reputation of the institute at which they are enrolling to avoid becoming victims of a scam involving bogus or fake qualifications.
  • Emirates Business 24-7 reported on the issue of fake MBAs in Dubai on 30 January 2011 but did not name any institutes.
