Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) is the fourth largest and most northern emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It’s home to our University of Stirling RAK campus.
With 7,000 years of fascinating history and culture, magnificent landscapes and rich, terracotta desert plains, the emirate has something for everyone.
Bordered by Oman on the south and northeast, it also shares a border with the emirates of Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Sharjah, as well as boasting a coastline that extends for 64 kilometers.
Proud of its heritage and founded on strong local values, RAK is popular with UAE nationals, expatriates, foreign investors and tourists alike. Only 45 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Dubai, the emirate has fantastic travel links to the airport and national highway, which enables easy access to other regions.
RAK offers a wide range of activities, including water sports, sailing cruises, desert camps, golf courses and mountain adventures that present the ultimate outdoor experience for residents and visitors.
