United Arab Emirates

9. United Arab Emirates

The UAE has become a world destination for international students in recent years. The UAE excels in programs that focus on science, technology, business, finance, and more. In some cases, international students may be able to focus on working or completing an internship to further their degree and career options as opposed to only taking classes. However, many universities in the UAE do not allow international students to work, in this case, it's best to obtain grant and scholarship funding to help pay for tuition & living expenses.

If you love to travel, the UAE is an ideal hub from which to branch out and see many parts of the world in your spare time. There are seven separate emirates that make up the UAE: Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, and Abu Dhabi. In addition, each of these individual emirates has its own exclusive culture. The UAE is a safe and peaceful place to study, and students are likely to find the residents warm, welcoming, and willing to share their culture and learn about others.
