Things to know before studying in Dubai: While the UAE isn’t yet a top draw in the field of higher education like the USA or the UK, there are chances that it may soon reach there. All it needs to do is follow the lead of Dubai. The de facto entertainment capital of the world, Dubai today has a university that has broken into the QS ranking while four others are listed in the top 50 universities in the Gulf area. Then there are also a slew of foreign universities that have opened their branches in the city, which has all but revolutionized the education sector in the city. Also, being one of the fastest growing economies and home to some of the biggest companies in the world, it presents attractive work opportunities for international students.
That being said, Dubai is still an unknown city for many international students who want to know more about it before studying in Dubai. Knowing about one’s study-abroad destination properly not only helps one prepare better, but calms down the nerves by eliminating unwarranted apprehensions.
The emirate and the city of Dubai is fast emerging as the education hub of the United Arab Emirates with more than 65 colleges and universities situated in and around the Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) and the Dubai Knowledge Village. The academic level of the universities and the success ratio of their placements are on a par with global standards.
