Zayed University Learning Outcomes (ZULOs)
The faculty at Zayed University have identified six general education learning outcomes they feel are essential to assure students' future success. These outcomes are Zayed University's public statement of what the institution values most in an undergraduate education within its unique context. Developed by faculty in 2001, they have undergone a regular review and improvement process in order to maintain their relevance and suitability. The ZULOs form the foundation of the academic program and are the focus of the learning assessment program. In 2014, the ZULOs were aligned with the learning outcomes provided by the Qualification Framework Emirates (QFE). Each ZULO is accompanied by a complete matrix (rubric) which provides descriptions of where the students should be during major milestones of their baccalaureate degree. The ZULOs are:
For each of the ZULOs a matrix containing indicators, criteria, and standards stated as developmental levels has been created.

Major Learning Outcome (MALOs)
Within each college or department, faculty have also identified Major Learning Outcomes (MALOs) which are discipline specific. The purpose of the MALOs are to provide a disciplinary lens to the learning outcomes. All MALOs will be aligned to the QFE learning outcomes by the end of 2015.
Graduate Program Learning Outcomes (GPLOs)
Graduate programs have their own set of learning outcomes (GPLOs) which are not required to be aligned with the undergraduate learning outcomes, but they are assessed through a similar process. All GPLOs will be aligned to the QFE learning outcomes by the end of 2015.
