Praise to Allah, and prayers and peace be upon his messenger our Prophet Muhammad.

On behalf of my colleagues and myself I welcome you to our university website. DAU is one of the first private universities in the Kingdom established in 2008 with five colleges with state-of-the-art facilities that meet all university requirements. DAU currently has six colleges with distinguished programs at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels aligned with the labor market requirements, the Kingdom’s Vision 2023, the National Transformation Program objectives, and the goal of sustainable developing.
One of the university’s most notable recent achievements were obtaining full institutional accreditation from the Education and Training Evaluation Commission (ETEC-NCAAA), and the accreditation of all its undergraduate programs by ETEC-NCAAA with only one remaining program will be completing its accreditation procedures from the Commission soon. This is considered an outstanding performance not only at the level of private universities, but even at the level of all universities in the Kingdom.

The university greatly value international accreditation’s and partnerships. Its Law Bachelor Program is accredited by the French Supreme Council for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education, and the Bachelor of Architecture program has the American equivalent accreditation NAAB. The Bachelor of Nursing program is a joint program with the British University of Liverpool John Moores offering dual degree, the Bachelor of Respiratory Therapy program in partnership with Georgia State University, USA.
As for partnerships at the national level, there are 8 cooperation agreements with universities and colleges to exchange performance indicators and bench-marking, 9 cooperation agreements between medical city hospitals and DAU’s medical colleges for the training of our students, We have signed two agreements to adopt King Saud University’s study plans for our Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Law programs, and Saudi Commission for Health Specialties signed an agreement with DAU’s to implement dental assistant qualification programs for bachelor’s degree holders.

We pray to Allah the Almighty for continuing glory and prosperity for our dear homeland, more growth and development for our university, and success for our students.
