Reasons to Study in the UAE  

The United Arab Emirates has one of the highest population growth rates in the world, mainly due to the many thousands of expatriates who arrive every year. Attracted to its robust economy, excellent job prospects and the sun, sea and sand vibe, professionals have long been descending in droves to hubs like Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But students can also take advantage of the benefits of graduate courses in the UAE, which is fast becoming known as a region of academic excellence. Here are just a few reasons to take your studies further in the Middle East.

Experience true diversity

Pursuing an education is estimable, but there are some lessons in life that exist beyond the lecture theatre. As an international magnet for teaching and student talent, the Middle East draws people from across the globe to its thrumming cities. You’ll rub shoulders with fellow students from both the East and West – it’s the inevitable advantage of such a centralized location. Not only will it equip you with the global outlook that is so very attractive to employers, your network of connections could bag you a friend to crash with on every continent!

Gain a wealth of cultural insight

From the resourcefulness of the desert tribes to the charms of the souk stallholder, the rich cultural tapestry of Dubai is woven from many different threads. Each tradition is worth unravelling to its origin story, whether it’s of the traditional nomadic lifestyle or the exquisite Emirati cuisines that can still be enjoyed today. To a fresh resident, the UAE is a truly exotic destination, with a rich cultural heritage that will furnish many a delightful surprise throughout your stay.

Work for the rewards

Once you’ve submitted that mind-sapping essay or trundled out of a four hour exam, you’ll be grateful that cities of the UAE have been designed around a work hard, play hard mentality. Whether you prefer to lounge in the almost permanent sunshine, hit some of the world’s finest shopping malls or enjoy a celebratory meal in a Michelin star eatery, a profusion of enticing possibilities awaits beyond the books.

The forecast is sunny

In the UAE, the future’s bright for graduates, so if you do choose to extend your stay once you’ve attained your qualification, the likelihood is you’ll have excellent prospects. Economic expansion, demand for skilled workers and an increasingly diversified job market are all great news for a freshly-minted workforce, not to mention the fact citizens pay zero tax in Dubai!
