Building schools of the future - 42 Abu Dhabi

42 Abu Dhabi exterior


No classes. No teachers. No tuition fees. An innovative and disruptive coding school built on the philosophy that everyone deserves the opportunity to explore their talent.

Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge, ADEK's purpose-built 42 Abu Dhabi campus will open it's doors in February 2021 in the heart of the UAE capital’s historic Mina Zayed warehouses district and will offer a revolutionary approach to divergent and gamified learning. It will be the first GCC campus of the internationally renowned 42 Network of coding and computer programming schools. In only seven years, the expanding 42 Network of schools has grown to over 20 globally. 42 Abu Dhabi will accommodate up to 750 students once fully operational.

Another bilateral milestone in the UAE-France Strategic Dialogue

42 Abu Dhabi follows both countries recently reaffirming their long-term commitment to enhance innovative exchange in sectors including culture, education, advanced sciences, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, medtech and agritech. The school will follow the tuition-free model of coding and programming education pioneered by French billionaire Xavier Niel, who founded the Network’s inaugural campus in Paris, École 42, in 2013. We are very proud to have been associated with this development.
