This research identifies the learning strategies of UAE University (UAEU) students. The importance of this research in UAE stems from the fact that learning strategies may vary from one country to another and hence, UAE students may (hypothesized) possess unique cultural and behavioral learning strategies. This research introduces a theoretical pedagogical framework made of seven learning strategies and endeavored to shortlist their perspective items and measures through a focus-group (FG) methodology. The selected learning strategies were the students' motivation, time-poorness, mastery effort, assessment focus, competitiveness, and listening. The research examined and explained their importance using a survey research on a random sample of 179 UAEU students. This research provided interesting insights and contrasts pertaining to the learning strategies of UAEU students. Implications arising from the framework are discussed highlighting different theoretical as well as professional contributions and contentions and portrayed a path where pending issues are addressed by future research.
