Limited Capacity seats available

Transnational education continues to grow as the traditional segment of international students go abroad for a variety of reasons including career growth, educational quality, visa challenges or the experience of living abroad. Globals differ from this traditional segment as they look for career advancement and quality of education, without having to go very far from home.

Both the Global population as well as the transnational support the development of geographically accessible education hubs. The UAE has in fact seen consistent growth in the transnational population resulting in the country’s evolution into a semblance of an education hub with higher education institutions in various Emirates. But the UAE faces some stiff competition from other more established free zones (e.g. Malaysia) and new emerging hubs (e.g. Qatar).

In order for the UAE to maintain itself as a leading education destination for the region, a revitalization is required; one that will not only upgrade the options for HEI set up but also upgrade the caliber of institutions that are choosing to enter the marketplace.
