Dubai's Knowledge and Human Development Authority, which licenses and regulates free-zone universities and colleges, has certified the first batch of degrees under Dubai's Resolution 21.

The law authorises the authority to certify qualifications from private academic institutions in Dubai's free zones and guarantees the degrees are recognised by all public and private companies and government departments in Dubai.

The first degree to be certified was at Heriot-Watt University's branch campus, which submitted 15 certificates earned by its students.
