Scholarships in Dubai

‘Expensive’ is the reaction of parents thinking about their children’s education in the UAE.

Well, for students who wish to continue studying in UAE itself, finding the right scholarship could be the key.

Studies reveal that university students are on some form of scholarship with UAE universities offering under-graduate and post-graduate programs with scholarships running into hundreds of thousands of Dirhams to attract meritorious and financially challenged students to their campuses.

The trend goes by the usual norm of 20-30% of fees being exempted but goes as far as 50-100% scholarships in cases of exceptionally bright and deserving students. These full scholarships are provided to students wanting to study but cannot afford the fee due to special circumstances. Academically inclined students are also offered a tuition waiver depending upon their scores at various levels with offers such as 10% tuition fee waiver for students scoring 86-89 percent and more than 15% for those scoring 90 percent and above. One hundred per cent scholarships are given on a discretionary basis. Scholarships are awarded based on academic performance and a combination of academic and sporting achievement.

“These exchanges will now be called National Career Counselling Centres. Apart from searching and applying for jobs on our portal, candidates can also avail career-related counselling by either visiting these centres or through our helpline numbers,” the Union Minister said.
