The College of Graduate Studies (CGS) has established minimum requirements for admission to Master’s programs. Individual Master’s programs may set additional and/or higher standards for admissions. To view the minimum requirements please click here.

  • The deposit slip of the required non-refundable application fee, as relevant to the program, deposited in to the university’s bank account. (Please refer to the fees section below for details).
  • Identity documents as required for Emirati students (copy of passport and Khulasat Al-Qaid) and international students (copy of passport).

  • Recommendation letters as required by the individual programs.

It is important to note that if you uploaded a university transcript and English language test score (IELTS/TOEFL) as part of your application, they are considered unofficial and the original and final university transcript and English language test scores are still required in order to complete your application. Please ensure that all missing items, including the official university transcript and English language test scores, are submitted to the Admissions Department in order to complete your application (personally or by express mail). (Please refer to the fees section below for details).

Applicants should not submit any supporting documentation to the Admissions Department until they have submitted an online admissions application. The Admissions Department will not accept any documentation unless an online admissions application has been submitted for the intended semester of admission.

Important Dates

Applicants must submit their online application 3 months before the start of the Academic semester. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance after the VC approval.

Please allow 2 weeks from submission date to process your admission application.


All graduate applicants to UAEU are required to submit the application fee online (Visa) as part of the application process, otherwise applications will not be considered complete, and consequently an admissions decision will not be made.
