Higher Education in Dubai, A World to Gain!
  • Thirdwave Overseas Education

  • Students, aspiring for quality education at
    affordable cost, in great numbers have been
    flocking to Dubai which has emerged as a global
    hotspot for higher education. Higher Education in
  • This is more so in the engineering and technology
    streams where the demand-supply gap is huge.
    Citing UNESCO statistics experts confirm that
    inbound student mobility to the UAE seeking
    higher education has been growing in enormous

Education in Dubai
  • The number of international degree-seeking
    students in the UAE witnessed a spike from 48,653
    in 2011 to 77,463 in 2016 according to data from
    UNESCO. India contributes the largest number of
    foreign-seeking degree students, says Ajay
    Shukla, Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer,
    Higher Education UAE, adding this is not
    surprising considering that they form the largest
    number of expats in the UAE.
  • According to UNESCO, Indian students make up
    about 19 per cent of all international students.
    The other countries which contribute a high
    number of inbound degree-seeking students in the
    UAE include Syria, Jordan, Egypt and Oman. This
    is because Dubai has emerged as a knowledge hub
    in the MENA region, affirms Dr T. Vinay Kumar,
    Director, Third Wave Overseas Education.

Why Dubai?
  • Dubai has become a favourite among parents and
    students for multiple reasons, the first being
    the freedom to choose between educational
    institutions. Dubai, interestingly, is home to 60
    globally respected international university
    campuses, the largest number anywhere in the
    world. Notably, India is all set to open its
    first branch of Indian Institute of Technology
    (IIT) in the UAE. Higher Education in DubaiEven
    as they cite Dubais top-class infrastructure,
    experts also hail its generous visa policy.
    Students doing post-graduation have been allowed
    to take up part-time work since 2016 for
    designated employers. Besides extending one-year
    residency for foreign university graduates,
    exceptionally talented students also get a
    10-year residency while others are provided a
    five-year visa.
  • While Indian campuses offer 50 scholarship for
    eligible students, some foreign universities have
    exchange programs. Students in the campuses of
    UK universities can study one year in Dubai and
    the second year in the parent university campus.
    After studies, they can also stay back for 2
    years, says Dr. Vinay.Students opt for Dubai
    because most of them land employment in the
    companies where they do internship, Dr. Vinay
    explains. Besides its strategic location, Dubai
    is also a safe haven for the student community
    due to its stable political leadership which
    according to Dr. Shukla is one major attraction.

Higher Education in Dubai
  • Pursuing higher education in Dubai is affordable
    due to lower tuition fees and cost of living.
    They are far lower compared to study
    destinations like the UK, US, Canada or European
    countries, points out R.N. Saha, BITS Pilani
    Dubai Campus Director. But Dr. Vinay says Dubai
    would benefit a lot if it starts offering MD
    programs for medical students.
  • Doing MD in India is very expensive and it is
    tough to get admission in English-speaking
    countries while non-English speaking countries do
    not offer MD programs to students who have
    completed their MBBS back home. So, if Dubai
    starts offering MD programs, it would attract
    thousands of students from India, opines Dr.
    Vinay.The status of global hotspot for higher
    education, Dubais political leadership knows,
    does help the emirate since it has an opportunity
    to retain and utilise graduating talents for a
    longer term to achieve its avowed goal of
    emerging as a knowledge-based economy with
    emphasis on emerging technologies.
  • As a global leader in innovation, a
    hyperconnected business hub and multicultural
    melting pot, Dubais international universities
    offer a wealth of courses designed for
    forward-thinking leaders of the future, from
    disruptive technologies to business
    qualifications to art and literary creative
    programs, Dubai is the preferred destination for
    high-profile multinationals looking to
    supercharge their career prospects. Higher
