In the middle of its golden jubilee year, the UAE is also celebrating the massive success of providing its residents and citizens with first-class education for fifty years
The UAE are an educational pioneer in the Arab world. It has recognized and recognized the important role it plays in stabilizing a nation. From rustic schools with minimal infrastructure to technologically advanced classrooms with smartboards, education has come a long way in the UAE. In 2021, education is seen as a tool that future generations can use to guide and change society.
One of those transformers is Ascentria, a multi-award-winning institute dedicated to preparing Indian curriculum students for highly competitive Indian entrance exams for leading engineering and medical schools. Students have been admitted to top colleges around the world every year since its inception. Ascentria achieved this by customizing its programs for golf students, providing pastoral care, highlighting each student’s progress, conducting personal doubt sessions, and focusing on achieving the student’s goal.
With sprawling university campuses and constantly updated courses, an increased focus on technology and a greater focus on student wellbeing, the growth in the education sector has matched the rapid pace of development in the UAE.
At the 2017 World Government Summit, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, said, “The first priority is education, the second is education and the third is education.”
In line with this and the national vision of developing future-oriented talent from the Emirates, the Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies offers first class training for students from the Emirates to ensure continuous professional development in critical areas of banking and finance. The undergraduate and graduate programs were introduced to meet the need for local expertise in the financial services sector.
A key tool in making Vision 2021 a reality is the National Innovation Strategy, launched by Sheikh Mohammed in 2014, which aims to make the UAE one of the most innovative countries in the world by promoting innovation in key sectors, including education. The strategy will set up innovation laboratories in schools and universities to equip students with targeted skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, perseverance and adaptability.
Today, the quality of higher education in the UAE is among the top 20 in the world. The UAE is home to a number of the world’s leading universities and offers both on-campus and off-campus degree programs.
Sally Jeffery, PwC’s Global Network Leader, Education and Skills Network, said: “Higher education has seen exciting changes both globally and locally. Students are shifting towards goals that are not only good quality education, but also more attractive ones Employment and Residence Opportunities The recent UAE student visa reforms and the influx of reputable higher education institutions are steps in the right direction. “
In that regard, the London American City College (LACC), known for providing the best American and European education to students from around the world, has produced thousands of future business leaders and star executives. LACC is recognized as one of the best student-preferred providers of corporate education in the Middle East and has achieved an employment rate of over 90 percent with more than 10,000 alumni worldwide.
With each graduation class, the students’ knowledge, skills, adaptability, and sensitivity become more nimble. The future is here and many classrooms are becoming a mixture of traditional teaching ethics and values with modern technological learning tools and teaching methods. As the world goes through a phase of relatively uncertain future, the UAE’s educational institutions have quickly adapted to technology and affordability. Murdoch University Dubai recently announced a significant adjustment to its course fees for 2021 in response to the ongoing financial burden of the pandemic. The university will reduce its course fees for the Dubai campus for both new and returning students in all undergraduate and postgraduate programs for admission in May and September 2021 while maintaining its high standard of education.
There have been fundamental efforts to develop the educational ecosystem in the UAE, from the founding of the first university in 1976, the University of the United Arab Emirates in Al Ain, to the present day where there are more than 65 prestigious local and international universities in the country.
What we are seeing in the UAE today is an extremely mature educational ecosystem. The rapid rise to a knowledge-based economy will only accelerate, establishing the UAE as the hub for higher education in the region.
