Study Abroad in UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE), also known as the Dawlat Al-Imarat Al-Arabiyah Al-Muttahidah, is a federation of 7 states – Dubai, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, Ras al Khaimah, Umm al Quwain, and Sharjah. The capital of the UAE is Abu Dhabi.

Despite being traditionally conservative, the UAE is currently one of the most liberal countries to be found in the Gulf region. Diverse beliefs and cultures are generally accepted.

The UAE, though somewhat under-rated, is nonetheless a viable destination for study abroad. There are many reasons for you to study abroad in the UAE in 2020.
