The ceremony was streamed live on radio stations and UD’s social media accounts granting people from all the world the opportunity to witness a new batch of successful students officially marching toward a new phase of their lives.

“Today, we honor our 187 diligent students who are qualified to serve the country and reciprocate its favor,” said H.E. Al Shamsi. “Knowledge is our key to success and education is our title that distinguishes us from others.”

He added that the University of Dubai is determined to continue developing its academic curricula in line with the wise policies and leadership initiatives of the UAE in the education sector. It is therefore UD’s responsibility to support intelligent learning and educational tourism and encourage its students to innovate as part of their knowledge-seeking mission.
