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.

My student experience has been amazing! I’ve had the opportunity to participate in a lot of events and made lots of friends, it’s like home. My favourite thing about the University is how internationally diverse the student body is; I get to learn new cultures from my friends and meet people from different nationalities.

The staff are welcoming and the teachers are engaging. When I first started I thought it would be hard to transition from school to university, but the staff and academics made it so easy to adapt to the university environment.
