- University of Jazeera (UOJ) or Jazeera University (not Al Jazeera University) offers courses in:
- Banking and Finance
- Human Resource Management (HRM)
- Information Systems and Technology (IT)
- Law and Economics
- Property Management
- Other programs under consideration in the areas of
Multimedia Design, Educational Technology, and Mass Communication.
- UOJ website has page heading "Institute of Special Needs". No further information available, unclear if that means courses for teachers interested in special needs students, or if special needs students are accepted at UOJ.
- UOJ website at both www.universityofjazeera.ae and www.uojazeera.com (looks like same content in both places).
- Total of 120 credit-hours required to complete a BBA or BSc, 135 credit hours for Bachelor in Law and Economics (LLB? BCom?).
- Tuition fees for 2008-2009 calculated on the basis of AED 950 per credit-hour (e.g. a course studied 3 hours per week costs AED 2850 for the semester). Most courses are 3 credit-hours each. Annual fees estimate based on 3-4 years study to complete a degree, although the usual course limit restriction is 18 credit hours per semester, or 36 per year, so most students will take at least 4 years to complete a bachelor's degree (in some circumstances, students may register for up to 21 credit hours in a semester).
- Additional fees for materials and lab use.
- Other fees include application fee 1200 dhs, orientation fee 600 dhs, student ID card 150 dhs, and various other fees for letters, lockers, lost ID cards, transcripts, etc. See UOJ student handbook for full details.
- University scholarships available to students with high grades at high school.
- Financial assistance might be available if students are unable to pay. Apply to the Student Affairs Office.
- Jazeera University facilities include bookshop, cafetaria, IT center, library, medical clinic.
- UOJ student organisations include student alumni association, student clubs and societies, student union.
- Student dormitory accommodation available.
- Transport possibly arranged within Dubai.
- Teachers / lecturers / instructors should have bachelor's degree and minimum 2 years of experience. Apply by sending letter / CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. See UOJ website for current openings.
- There is also a University of Jazeera in Medani, Sudan. Presumably unrelated, and more usually called Al Jazeera University or Gezira University.
