The University of the United Arab Emirates has announced its commitment to the directives of the Ministry of Education regarding the protocols and procedures for the operation of educational institutions in view of the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the new system of weekly work, applying the instructions for the methods of offering courses in the spring semester of the academic year 2021-2022.

Students will be divided into two groups. The first includes the faculties of Engineering, Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Education.

The second group includes programs from the Colleges of Business and Economics, Science, Information Technology, Law, and Health Sciences from the College of Medicine and Health Sciences. Spring semester classes will take place Monday through Friday each week, while Friday classes will end at 12 p.m.

To safeguard the health and safety of students, faculty members, staff and workers at UAE, the campus periodically undergoes comprehensive sterilization campaigns in all buildings, gardens, roads and public places of the university. This will be done alongside the continuous daily sterilization of the main building, reception hall, ablution areas and toilets, and student residences with the latest sterilization methods.

The university administration also strictly enforces campus access rules using the green pass requirement of the Al Hosn application for faculty members and students who meet the requirements of the approved vaccination by the United Arab Emirates. Thermal cameras have been installed since the start of the pandemic to measure the body temperature of people entering campus.
