His Excellency Arthur Spyrou, Australian Ambassador to the UAE, said, “The opening of Curtin University's Dubai campus demonstrates the strength and the international value of Australian universities in this part of the world. The UAE is an important education partner for Australia and I am delighted that Curtin University, recently ranked as one of the top one percent of universities worldwide, will join our other leading Australian universities in showcasing high quality Australian research, knowledge, and teaching through a permanent presence in the UAE. This underscores the commitment of Australian institutions to the UAE market and Australia's commitment to expanding bilateral education cooperation with the UAE.”

Professor Deborah Terry, Vice-Chancellor of Curtin University said, “We are delighted to establish our new campus in Dubai and bring our world-class research and collaborative learning methods to students in the UAE and beyond.
