Following changes by the Dubai Government which concern Academic Institutions in Dubai Free Zones and the Academic Qualifications awarded by them, Graduates are able to receive an Academic Qualification that is legally recognised by the Government of Dubai. The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) certified Academic Qualification is accredited in the Home Country and quality assured by KHDA, and meets international standards.
These qualifications will be recognised in the Emirate by all public and private entities for all purposes.
In light of this new Resolution, KHDA announced the new tag that Heriot-Watt University Dubai Campus will be able to use to identify ourselves as a licensed institution from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority and provide assurance that our academic qualifications are certified by the Authority. The official tag line is:
