Abu Dhabi University
The new 2013-14 academic year is bringing the world to Abu Dhabi, ushering the next wave of students with nationalities ranging from Australia to Algeria, from Brazil to Jordan and from Egypt to the Comoros Islands.
The influx of students solidifies the emirate's ever-increasing popularity as an academic destination, buoyed by its recreational, natural and commercial attractions.
Welcoming the incoming students, Dr Nabil Ibrahim, Chancellor of Abu Dhabi University said: "To every student who has ever wanted to travel the world and experience exotic cultures, we are thrilled to say you have arrived at your destination. Our effervescent campus is bubbling with fresh new cultures, new talents and new mindsets. Abu Dhabi has emerged as a bridge that links the region to international tourists, investors and conglomerates. Similarly our institution is bridging the gap between ethnicities, genders and religions - while also serving as a bridge to their dream careers, thanks to our graduates' exceptional record in the job market."
