At the University of Birmingham Dubai, we value the partnerships we have nurtured with schools in the UAE. We work closely with students, their teachers and careers advisors to support young people in enhancing their skills and enabling a seamless progression from school to university.

Are you thinking about going to university?

Skills4Uni will guide you through the skills you need not only to support you in your current studies (such as coursework, independent projects or when you are revising) but also to study successfully in higher education.

These skills will be relevant in school, college, university and your working life. They're not just 'academic skills' - they are life skills that will allow you to make intelligent, balanced decisions.
