New partnership with University of Wollongong in Dubai


We are delighted to announce that NCUK has partnered with University of Wollongong in Dubai!


From January 2022, students will be able to study NCUK’s International Foundation Year. This qualification will open up a wide range of university progression opportunities in which students can choose from thousands of degree courses at more than 45 NCUK Universities.

The International Foundation Year at UOWD College is taught by academics who understand the needs and challenges of undergraduate students in Western universities and who are active researchers with up-to-date knowledge in their subjects.

Partnering with UOWD is an exciting extension to the significant growth and demand NCUK has undergone across the MENA region over recent years. In UOWD, a highly experienced and long-established tertiary institution within UAE, we are extremely confident that students from across the region will have an unrivalled opportunity to study a world-class qualification within a world-class teaching environment, with outstanding faculty. There is huge potential for this partnership to benefit many students and grow into a crucial strategic partnership for NCUK and our university network in the years to come.

Andrew Straughan, NCUK Associate Director – Africa, Middle East, Europe and Americas.

We look forward to welcoming students into UOWD from January and we can’t wait to see them progress to top-ranked universities worldwide next September.
