UAE universities well placed for international students
Universities in the UAE can expect to benefit from the country’s strengthening relationship with India, as well as the current political landscape in the US and UK.
A new study by Dubai International Academic City predicts that India will overtake China as the fastest-growing market for international students – with many of them set to head to the Emirates as ties between the nations in areas like trade, AI and space continue to grow.
The report added that UAE universities are also providing a viable alternative to those in the US, which currently has strict visa regulations, and the UK, where Brexit has created uncertainty for international students.
The UAE’s higher education sector is continuing to grow, with 83 per cent of universities recording an increase in student numbers during the last academic year.
