A diverse, sophisticated and ultramodern nation, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is renowned for its dynamic business environment and its open and progressive society, which combine to make it officially the happiest country in the region*. 

From unspoilt beaches to rugged mountains, and picturesque heritage sites to dazzling modern architecture, the UAE’s landscape is as diverse as its people, offering a truly unique lifestyle experience for students and professionals alike.

As the gateway between east and west, the country has become a safe and accessible base for leading multinationals from across the globe to establish a foothold in the Middle East market, and to explore emerging economies further afield.

With this expanding business base comes a wealth of opportunities for employment and enterprise, attracting students and professionals from around the world and giving the UAE its unique multicultural identity, as the home to nationals from almost 200 countries.

The higher educational landscape in the UAE reflects the diverse cultural mix of the country itself. With a thirst for innovation, the UAE is also gathering a growing reputation for its advancements in research and technological development.
