Welcome to the Provost Office

Message from the Provost

ZU Thank you for visiting the webpages of the Provost Office at Zayed University. I am honored to welcome you to our university, a dynamic and vibrant institution where our students are our purpose for being here.

Zayed University is a comprehensive, federal institution of higher learning with advanced and modern campuses in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The University offers 26 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in 8 colleges enrolling nearly 11,000 students of both genders and different nationalities. Our students are served by a highly qualified and diverse international faculty with rich background and experiences in academia, government and industry.

In the recent past, research and graduate studies have taken a higher priority at the university and, consequently, innovative research programs were introduced and new research thesis-based master’s programs were launched offering new and exciting research opportunities for faculty and students to work on projects individually or at one of the 10 centers and institutes in collaboration with local, regional and international partners.

We invite you to learn more about Zayed University and to explore how we can be of service to you or work together in partnership. We are always looking for people with passion and innovation to serve the higher education community in particular and the society at large.

Prof. Nagi Wakim
Acting Provost & Chief Academic Officer
