Weak university in blah setting
Faculty Member (Current Employee) – Arts and Sciences – February 10, 2017
As a university, this place is a joke. Pretends to be research oriented, but at least in my field, they don't even understand what that entails.
Overall caliber of low level US community college.
RAK is a depressing community with little to offer, though housing in seaside developments enjoyable.
Students at AURAK are generally nice kids, but clueless as to what higher education is all about. Administration not much better, and at top levels, quite dictatorial.
Would not be surprised if the place was out of business within next three years.
Generally pleasant faculty colleagues. Fantastic winter weather.
Boring and backwards emirate, not a real university, ridiculous teaching loads. Hung up on getting accrediation from low level US accrediting body, Sacs-coc.
