We are delighted to announce that the School of Education will be offering postgraduate provision at the University of Birmingham’s Dubai campus, which will open this autumn. In launching the campus, the University will become the first global top 100 and Russell Group University to establish a campus in this rapidly developing international education hub.

Staff within the School of Education have been working closely with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), which is responsible for the growth and quality of education, on the development of teacher education programmes within Primary and Secondary education. The programmes, which have been approved by KHDA, will support the Ministry of Education's aim of enhancing the status of teachers in the UAE and provide opportunities to share the School’s high quality provision internationally.

Professor Julie Allan, Head of the School of Education commented:

“The School of Education is proud to be offering teacher education at primary level and in secondary English and Science. Our high quality provision, judged as Outstanding by Ofsted, will enable us to support and develop excellent teachers in Dubai."

The new campus, which will be located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), will also provide opportunities for students to study on a range of other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including Business, Economics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering with further programmes to be offered subsequently.

The first phase of the campus will open in autumn 2017 and the first undergraduate and post-graduate students will commence their studies in September 2018.
