Academy President Message

It is my great pleasure and honour to welcome you to Rabdan Academy, an institution where the pursuit of excellence is at the heart of everything we do.

Since its establishment in 2013, Rabdan Academy has aimed to provide an exceptional experience for its students by adopting a dual learning approach, combining academic and vocational aspects, within an interactive learning environment in the Safety, Security, Defence, Emergency Preparedness and Crisis Management Sectors.

Our Vision 2025 sets an ambitious target and establishes clear milestones towards our strategic aspiration to be a World-Class Education, Training and Research institution that provides world-leading higher education, training, research and advice to individuals and organisations.

Rabdan Academy effectively contributes to the UAE development and modernisation process by training and qualifying a specialised national cadre to enable a better future. With that in mind, we collaboratively work with a number of strategic partners within the Safety, Security and Defence fields. We have also established a number of partnerships and cooperative agreements with world-leading academic and research institutions to encourage joint efforts in developing unique training programs that contribute to producing highly trained professionals at the national and international levels.

Rabdan Academy offers a variety of academic programs and vocational courses, aligned with the world's best-known standards and practices, that contribute to enriching our students’ knowledge, experience and skills, including Business Continuity Management, Integrated Emergency Management, Policing & Security, Intelligence Analysis, Homeland Security, Crime Scene, Policing & Security Leadership, and Defence & Security. These programs and courses open up broad opportunities to build professional career paths in strategic areas across the public and private sectors, and are delivered by a global faculty who qualified at the world’s top universities.

In addition to our Emirati students, international students are also made welcome on the Academy’s various programs and courses in their pursuit of building a professional academic and career path in the safety, security and defence sectors. Our international students are a very important part of the Academy’s community and we provide them with the support needed to facilitate their integration, development and enjoyment.

Rabdan Academy has full academic licensure and accreditation from the Commission for Academic Accreditation of the UAE Ministry of Education, and it applies Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Accumulation Transfer (CAT), reflecting the best global practices in this regard.

Our programs and courses are based on international theory and best-practice, and we also emphasise the importance of practical knowledge in developing students' abilities, offering our students the opportunity to experience various practical aspects related to their study and gain the experience necessary to build a successful and promising career.

To ensure our students’ well-being and satisfaction, we operate in a healthy and safe environment with a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities, employing modern technical methods and tools, and we organise initiatives and activities that contribute to forming, strengthening and consolidating a rich and integrated learning ecosystem.

I invite you to browse our website where you will find valuable information about our programs, courses, initiatives, potential opportunities, admission requirements and more.

We wish you much continued success!

Thank You,
