Rabdan Academy allowed direct applications to a number of its specialised and unique programmes in Safety, Security, Defence, Emergency and Crisis Management Sectors, as part of a comprehensive plan that gives all students the opportunity to apply for Rabdan Academy’s various programmes.

This step comes within Rabdan Academy’s continuous efforts to enable and empower qualified national cadres to be highly competitive in the broader labour market. The new approach will contribute to strengthening Abu Dhabi's position as a global destination for talent and consolidates the overall learning and development ecosystem.

In the current stage, interested students can apply for the Bachelor of Business Continuity Management and the Bachelor of Integrated Emergency Management, which are strategic programmes that open up a wide horizon to develop skills related to institutional development support along with gaining the knowledge to have an active role in the Emergency Preparedness and Crisis Management Domain.

H.E. Dr. Faisal Al Ayyan, Vice President of Rabdan Academy, highlighted the keenness of Rabdan Academy to give all students the opportunity to join the promising and unlimited prospects offered by Rabdan Academy’s programmes, enabling interested students to engage in an educational environment that enrich their knowledge and experience, and achieve the greatest benefit. He also pointed out that Rabdan Academy always seeks to foresight the future and keep looking to the promising opportunities that the future holds, which ultimately contributes to the graduation of distinct national cadres in the region and at the global level.

Al Ayyan added that Rabdan Academy’s new approach comes within the framework of its efforts to provide assistance and support to students in choosing the programmes that meet their desires and achieve their dreams, taking into account the prospects for education, the professional future, the rapid changes and urgent challenges around the world.

In the same context, Rabdan Academy organised webinar series to inform the interested students of its programmes. More than 2,000 students, who expressed their interest in building a professional career path in the sectors of Safety, Security, Defence, Emergency and Crisis Management, participated in the webinars, which were held in the presence of a group of academics, experts and specialists.

The webinars shed light on the Rabdan Academy various master's, bachelor's and diploma programmes. The discussions also touched on the future of professions and related prospects at the local, regional and global levels, in addition to the high-level standards that the Academy follows in designing its programmes and curricula, which include theoretical and practical courses that contribute to enriching the knowledge side of students as well as enhancing their practical efficiency in order to achieve pioneering results within the best levels of performance and quality.

It is worth noting that Rabdan Academy will hold more webinars in the future for those who are interested to join its programmes, which ultimately serves its strategic directions in developing distinct national cadres and building specialised human capabilities.
