A good education has immense long-term benefits and the UAE Global Education Fairs are here to ensure students choose the right path.

1. An enriching experience

Studying at an international school or university – in the UAE or overseas- is an enriching experience that helps young people attain the best degrees and qualifications. It also improves students’ employability in the global marketplace.

2. Stronger social skills

Research has shown that students who experience life in another country tend to mature earlier and have stronger social skills, as well as more confidence than those without international exposure.

3. Exposure to new cultures

Many students realise that while employers value international experience, the value of seeing the world, exploring oneself and becoming enveloped in a new culture or language cannot be understated.

How to find the right university

With such a large number of countries and universities offering courses, choosing where to go can be very difficult. One of the best places to start is by visiting an international education fair and one of the most important fairs in the world will be in the UAE shortly.
