Study in Dubai
Dubai has made
constant and efficient attempt to raise the level of male and
female literacy rates along with the level of education. In a
few ears, not only has the literacy rate of the natives of Dubai risen but
Dubai has managed to magnetize a large traffic of
international students also.
SYSTEM IN DUBAI:
It is compulsory
for international students to conclude their kindergarten,
primary and secondary schooling and hold a general secondary
certificate as a minimum requirement to be eligible for
enrollment in any university/college in Dubai. Apart there is a
minimum cut-off percentage which a student would require. This
cut-off varies for different courses and fields of study.
One can always
rent a private apartment in Dubai however; the rents can be high
according to the location and size of the apartment. It can cost
one AED 70,000-120,000 per year for a single bedroom apartment
while the cost can rise up to a phenomenal AED 140,000-190,000
for a three bedroom apartment. A more financially viable option
would be “shared accommodation” wherein one’s cost reduces
significantly. University also provides apartments for
international students however those are not sufficient to
accommodate every international student.
Tuition fees for
an undergraduate academic program on an average would be AED
173,400 approximately. While the fees for a graduate program
approximately lies from AED 54,800-82,200. Various scholarships
are made available for international students by the Government
of Dubai and also the Universities. A main criterion for getting
a scholarship is to obtain very good academic results. Otherwise
a student can take a study loan or even look for sponsors if
possible to get his/her education funded.
One of the best
parts about studying in Dubai is that one doesn’t have to rush
from embassy to consulates to issue a student’s visa. The visa
can be acquired from the University itself if one is able to
secure a seat in the university. The visa requirements
(documents, etc.) differ from university to university and
student’s ma contact their respective universities to receive
information regarding the above.
Dubai, Dubai Aerospace
University, Al Ghurair
University, Heriot Watt
University, Dubai polytechnic, etc. are some of the many
Universities available in Dubai.
