As a portal to Canadian education, we offer accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs based on a Canadian curriculum and education principles. Students are provided with a positive environment for study that is conducive to entrepreneurship and research, as well as a non-conventional approach to teaching and learning.

Canadian University Dubai is committed to providing students with an international academic experience, guided by the highest educational and corporate ethics, adding value to the personal and professional lives of its graduates, and the communities in which we serve.

Canadian University Dubai promotes Canadian perspectives in learning, research and application, grounded in an appreciation and respect for the diverse culture and values of the UAE.

CUD aims to achieve different goals starting with creating and maintaining an environment conducive to continual learning and improvement while continuously evaluating all aspects of CUD operations to ensure relevance and excellence, to adopt and show the enthusiasm and contribution of all staff and students and to support the ambitions of all by providing them with both academic excellence and the practical experience required for career success. Moreover, CUD aims to generate an atmosphere of dignity and mutual respect while encouraging scholarly debate and applied research and to accept accountability and value the input of all stakeholders particularly in our operation as a portal to Canadian education, and so make CUD the University of Choice in our target market and simultaneously an employer of choice for all academic, management and support staff. Besides that, CUD works to account for the needs of all internal and external stakeholders by securing sufficient and relevant resources that are available for the achievement of all strategic and operational goals, thus enhancing the sovereignty of the University as an independent institution of higher education.

Furthermore, CUD undertakes systematic resource planning for teaching requirements, space requirements, library and student service requirements and for information technology, and to use these plans as a basis for budget development and strategic planning. We seek to secure our status as a self-financing organization at the earliest opportunity, using new investments for expansion and development.
