Expelled student to resume studies at same varsity in UAE
He was 'unfairly' expelled after a complaint from a professor
A university student in Abu Dhabi, who was unfairly expelled after a complaint from a professor, will complete the course at the same university, a court has ruled.
The Abu Dhabi Appellant Court upheld a judgment issued by the Court of First Instance. It cancelled the decision issued by a private university in Abu Dhabi to dismiss the student during his final year of study.
Court documents stated that in 2018, the university’s disciplinary committee dismissed the student. One of his professors had complained that he had "bad behaviours". It was not clear in the court papers what these behaviours were.
The student appealed the dismissal decision, but the disciplinary committee rejected his appeal.
The young man said he lodged a complaint with the Ministry of Education, but he did not receive a response. This prompted him to file a lawsuit against the university for unfair dismissal. He appealed to the court to cancel the decision that prevented him from getting a bachelor’s degree.
In his lawsuit, the student claimed that the professor and members of the disciplinary committee were "unfair" and "biased". He also told the court that he was denied his right to defend himself.
The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance ruled to cancel the decision to dismiss the student. The university appealed the ruling, claiming it had dismissed the student "because of his repeated bad behaviours".
