Published (Updated )

The 2019-20 results from a rating system for Dubai’s international branch campuses show that City, University of London’s Dubai Centre has been awarded five stars.

The Higher Education Classification system, developed by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) - the emirate’s academic regulatory body - in partnership with QS, evaluates universities on eight performance indicators including teaching, employability, research, programme strength and facilities.

Commenting on the results, Dr Kevin Dunseath, Director of City’s Dubai Centre, said:

This recognition is evidence of the hard work and continued commitment of my Dubai Centre colleagues and of those many London-based colleagues who have consistently supported City’s operations in Dubai.

Our current and prospective students should be left in no doubt that at City, they will be assured of a world-class learning experience from a long-established and globally reputed university.
