How to find out if your university is accredited in the UAE


If you’ve just started looking for universities in the UAE to start the next stage of your education, one of the first questions you might have is – how do I know if a university or college is accredited in the UAE?

It is crucial to ensure that you study at an institution recognized by the relevant authorities, as you will need to submit your accredited degree when applying for jobs after you graduate.

The UAE Ministry of Education also emphasizes that students must enroll in accredited higher education institutions and courses to ensure their qualifications can be verified and recognized by employers.

The Ministry also stresses on its website that students should ensure that their chosen major is accredited by the Ministry to ensure that the qualification obtained will be accredited by the Ministry.

Accredited Universities in the UAE

The Council for Academic Accreditation (CAA) is the UAE Federal Government’s higher education quality assurance agency. You can easily find the list of UAE licensed institutions on the CAA website: https://www.caa.ae/Pages/Institutes/All.aspx

In Dubai, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) established the University Quality Assurance International Board (UQAIB) to ensure the quality of education at international branch campuses. UQAIB uses a validation model to ensure that the academic programs offered in Dubai are the same as the accredited programs taught at the institution’s main campus. All higher education institutions located in Dubai Free Zones are required to go through the UQAIB quality assurance process. According to the KHDA website, this process is in addition to the Council for Academic Accreditation (CAA). “The CAA is a functional department of the Federal Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research that licenses and accredits all higher education institutions outside the free zones,” the website states.
