The United Arab Emirates gained Independence in the year 1971 by formal nationalization from the British Protectorate Treaties which ended on 1 December 1971 followed soon after by the eventual unification of the seven emirates namely Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al- Khaimah, Sharjah, Umm al-Quwain. In a very short span of just two decades, the UAE has witnessed meteoric growth in all sectors of business, trade, commerce, banking, industry, manufacturing, hotel and tourism. But what is admirably and pleasantly surprising is the high standard of Education that UAE offers International Students who wish to pursue their studies at all Degree Levels, also including education at the School, College, University, and Doctoral Levels.
Perhaps, major attractions that compel an increasingly number of International Students to arrive in the UAE for their education are factors such as an internationally recognized education degree, affordable costs, Tuitions given in English, handpicked international faculties, amazing mix of world cultures and cuisines, shopping paradise, and most importantly, social security and friendly local people.
What makes UAE as the most sought after education destination is the fact that it is home to the best foreign accredited Colleges and Universities in the world. Many leading foreign universities have their Off-shore Campuses in the UAE and Dubai Knowledge Village is one of the finest examples besides the famous American University of Sharjah in the Emirate of Sharjah and Fujairah College in the Northern Emirate of Fujairah. Students graduating from Schools/Colleges/Universities in the UAE find that their educational qualifications are globally accepted and respected, helping International Students to carve a brilliant career pathway ahead.
