ZU campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Abu Dhabi. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. Foreigners who come to ZU through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
