Our Dubai Campus is situated in Dubai South’s business district and is easily accessible from downtown Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The campus is a 40 minute car/taxi journey direct from Dubai International Airport and approximately 20 minutes from the Dubai Marina.


A regular bus service also runs direct to campus from Dubai’s Ibn Battuta Metro Station, if visitors choose to use the red line on the Dubai Metro system. In the coming years, metro and rail networks are also being extended and constructed direct to Dubai South to further improve transport links to the region and ultimately to our Dubai Campus.
