Along with His Excellency Dr. Sheikh Majid Bin Saeed Al Nuaimi, they envisioned to establish a university that will cater to financially challenged yet deserving multi-national students in the United Arab Emirates. Bath Spa University Academic Center RAK is licensed by the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) to operate as a university through the RAKEZ Academic Zone.
