ADNOC has created a world-class education and energy research ecosystem that harnesses the talent and creativity of Emiratis and supports the development of the oil and gas sector.

Our investments in education and training include the ADNOC Technical Institute (ATI) and a series of ADNOC Schools in Abu Dhabi. 

We also operate a comprehensive Scholarship Programme, first founded in 1974, which enables UAE nationals to pursue post-secondary education opportunities at the world’s leading universities.



ADNOC Schools

Founded in 2008, ADNOC schools teach gifted Emirati and expatriate students, following a rigorous curriculum based on the highest academic standards, and prepares them for admission to the world’s leading universities.
