Student Success Centre

Student Success Centre at CUD 

The purpose of the Student Success Center (SSC) is to guide and support you through your personal and academic journey at CUD. Visit the SSC to learn how to manage your time and stress, develop optimal note-taking strategies, understand assignments, improve your math skills, or enhance your English, reading, writing, grammar, and research skills.

Workshops that promote personal development and academic success are offered throughout the semester or upon request. These range from improving study skills, academic writing skills, and exam taking skills to building higher levels of confidence and reaching your academic goals.

The SSC is a place where you can receive personal and academic support, attend valuable workshops, work on your assignments, find resources, and prepare for exams. Academic success is about knowing the right strategies and having the right skills, and we’re here to help you succeed! For more information, email SuccessCenter@cud.ac.ae.

Personal Counseling

Creating and maintaining a healthy balance between your academics and personal life can be a stressful experience. Our Student Counselor is here to guide you through this process and help you overcome challenges, find clarity, build resilience, and reach your goals. She has professional experience and training and is committed to a strengths-based, solution-focused, and multicultural approach to allow you to fully benefit from your university experience and become the best version of yourself.

Common issues university students face include stress, anxiety, time-management, motivation, self-esteem, life transitions, and identity development. With personal counselling, you are given a safe and nonjudgmental environment to discuss, understand, and effectively handle these issues, and any others. While counselling is offered, referrals are provided if further or long-term services are needed.

All sessions are strictly confidential.

Academic Accommodations/Accessibility Services

At Canadian University Dubai, we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment for students of determination and students with disabilities. If you have a documented physical disability, psychological condition, learning difficulty, chronic illness, or other barrier to your learning, you are eligible for academic accommodations.

We work closely and with absolute confidentiality with students to accommodate their individual needs and ensure they have equal opportunity to reach their maximum potential. Academic accommodations include exam scheduling and time limit extensions, note-taking support, learning resources, and a distraction-reduced environment. These are handled on a case-by-case basis that takes into account the student’s unique needs and the course or programme learning objectives.
