UK Europe Day

The lure of a luxury lifestyle on the white sands of the Middle East, with sunny skies all year round and so much to do– you must have considered Dubai for a holiday or to visit friends and family!

Dubai will not be your obvious choice to study, but with over 27,500 students enrolled in 65+ universities it really becoming the next destination for education! You will be passionate about UK Education and will want to continue, so choosing to study at a quality UK University in Dubai will be the solution moving to one of the most dynamic and innovative cities in the world.

Where else would you find the world’s tallest building standing at 2722 feet, the world’s only 7-star hotel, the world’s fastest rollercoaster and a coffee that contains actual gold?! Half of Dubai’s population is aged 25-34 making it a youthful city, the population is made up of approximately 85% expats and although Arabic is the official language, English is spoken throughout the city. 

There has never been a more exciting time to visit Dubai as we look forward to the Expo in 2021 and a world of opportunity that it brings.

“Middlesex University stood out amongst the other universities in Dubai, as it was one of the few offering a British Degree. The main thing I love about MDX is the staff and the students as they are extremely resourceful. I especially love the passion the teachers share in helping, as well as the useful library material the university has to offer. My favourite place on campus is HUB19, as it is not only a place to relax, but also to make new friends.”
