About United Arab Emirates
The University of Waterloo United Arab Emirates experience
Creating global students and global citizens. That’s our goal. We’re also committed to developing educational excellence on the world stage - and for good reason. Since 1957, we’ve become recognized for our high-quality, groundbreaking education interwoven with real-world relevance.
Recognition for excellence
Maclean’s, Canada’s national news magazine, in its reputation survey, has ranked Waterloo, “most innovative” for 21 years in a row. Year after year we also win praise for being:
- the country’s “best overall” university
- the most likely to develop “leaders of tomorrow”
Coming to the United Arab Emirates
Waterloo, in partnership with Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), has brought the same educational standards and commitment to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), helping to maintain the momentum of the region’s expansion, while remaining sensitive to the national identity.
We’re proud to partner with HCT to meet these goals. HCT is the UAE’s largest educational institution and, with a network of 16 colleges, the only organization servicing the entire United Arab Emirates. With campuses equipped with the latest in information technology, infrastructure and laboratories, HCT graduates students with strong technical skills and leadership abilities for the public and private sector.

After two years studying in the United Arab Emirates, University of Waterloo UAE students will complete their final two years of study at our exciting, innovative campus in Canada.
