The UAE's second city, your second home

You get to live and study in Dubai; a place that’s unlike any other, where there’s always something new to discover. Dubai is a cosmopolitan city which combines history and modernity, recognised for its low crime rates, cleanliness, and exceptional quality of life, the welcoming environment is perfect for students venturing into university life.

In little over 50 years, Dubai has transformed itself from a tiny settlement to a glittering metropolis and world-class destination. For the second consecutive year, Tripadvisor's Travellers' Choice Awards named it the top choice among tourists worldwide. Welcoming over 16 million visitors in 2023, Dubai's iconic skyscrapers and beautiful beaches set the stage for diverse experiences, global cuisine, and endless sunshine. The only thing you can’t experience in Dubai is boredom.
