Prospecting Universities of Your Own Needs and Liking

Students at UniversityDubai is currently improving its education system with the creation of Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). The city envisions DIAC to be the new education hub for all private schools, universities in particular. Their initiative is to provide students from across the region with suitable choices and encourage them to stay in the country. A couple of factors come into play when students choose schools, particularly for higher education. How exactly should you assess a school? Should you attend a public or private school in Dubai? Abroad or stay within your region? What about the courses you need to take? Below are some tips to help you choose the perfect school for you.


If you can, it’s a good idea to visit first your prospective school. Doing so is the only way you can get a feel of what the school is like. Try to visit on open days and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Ask about the courses, what college life is like, and the benefits the school offer. If you can, take the time to talk and chat with actual students of your prospective university for honest, first-hand experience.

Get to know the basics (accommodation, transportation, and the environment).

Since you will spend most of your time on-campus, don’t forget the area itself will most likely be your second home for a couple of years. It’s a good idea to scout for possible accommodation when you make that open school visit. See if the university offers dorms or other types of student accommodations. This lets you know how much they would cost. Consider transportation costs as well as shops available in the area. Moving away not only incurs tuition costs, as there are other moving and living costs to consider. Staying within your city or region can bring you a significant amount of savings, especially when you continue living in your home.
