We are pleased that TFA also has connections with other universities, with which we have had, and plan to continue, workshops with, in order to avail our students with a variety of choices in majors and careers to enhance their college/career lives. These include BUiD (the British University in Dubai) and NYU (New York University in Abu Dhabi), just to mention a few.

Our goal is to provide our students with every opportunity to build a bright, solid future.
