Abu Dhabi / WAM
Abu Dhabi University (ADU) is gearing to kick-off the 2021-2022 academic year with a safe and secure hybrid learning environment that will make it easier for students to thrive and succeed.
On August 29, ADU welcomed around 7,900 new and returning students to its upgraded, digitally sophisticated campuses in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai, and Al Dhafra in its Colleges of Business, Engineering, Arts and Science, Health Sciences, and Law.
The technology and protocols in place at ADU safeguard the safety of students, faculty and staff at the university, while enhancing the quality of learning, research and community engagement across all campuses. ADU’s enhanced hybrid learning environment will make it easier for students to balance and schedule their studies in a manner that enables them to succeed in their studies.
Professor Waqar Ahmad, Chancellor of Abu Dhabi University, said, “Since its inception, Abu Dhabi University has made significant strides in delivering the highest quality of education within a safe and secure environment. Fully face-to-face teaching is a thing of the past. Responding to feedback from our students and teachers, we have established an extensive infrastructure that allows for a hybrid learning environment that combines in-classroom education with distance learning.
“As a result, we are proud that the teaching and learning experience of our faculty and students continued uninterrupted throughout the pandemic. In line with our ambitious goals to continuously enhance and expand our hybrid education model, ADU has invested heavily in IT infrastructure to provide consistent and seamless services to all members of the university.”
