• The initiative reflects the strategic partnership between Rabdan Academy and the Republic of Indonesia Defense University (RIDU) with the aim of enhancing multidisciplinary capabilities and qualifying cadres specialised in defence and security.

• Cadets will study the next semester at Rabdan Academy, which promotes the exchange of knowledge, expertise and specialised skills in the areas of safety, security, defence, emergency preparedness and crisis management.

Abu Dhabi – XX December 2022: Rabdan Academy received the first batch of the Republic of Indonesia Defense University’s cadets to study at Rabdan Academy during the next semester, under the student exchange program, one of the aspects of joint cooperation between the two sides.
The first batch included (10) cadets from the Indonesian side of the third year students, who will enrol in the Academy’s various programs in the scientific, academic, research and professional fields, across security, defence, emergency preparedness and crisis management areas.
Rabdan Academy implements its student exchange program in cooperation with its partners from various leading and prestigious universities around the world, in an exceptional and unique context that combines academic, cultural, societal and professional aspects, contributing to the exchange of knowledge, experiences and skills, and the promotion of joint research and development, along with sharing high-level experiences.
This program is a follow-up to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the RIDU and Rabdan Academy signed in September at Sentul, Indonesia, in the presence of H.E. Prabowo Subianto, Indonesian Minister of Defence.
Prabowo met with the first batch RIDU’s cadets at the Ministry of Defense, Jakarta, and highlighted the importance of performing this study assignment well, and taking advantage of this opportunity to equip themselves, not only with knowledge, but also with international experience.
It is worth noting that while Rabdan Academy receives visiting students from various universities around the world under the student exchange program, it also allows its students to spend up to one semester in another country within a new educational context and a rich experience that allows them to integrate into the wider world.
