This year’s unprecedented circumstances have changed many plans for many people, including tertiary students.
Those who might have thought they would study abroad, or enrol in a university in their home country, may suddenly be faced without that option — or may choose to stay closer to home in the UAE instead.
If you’ve been following our education webinar series closely, you’ll know that many UAE universities have embraced the challenge of distance learning and adapted quickly.
Local institutions have been at the forefront of the shift to remote learning, and have been implementing flexible alternatives to face-to-face teaching for several years. The Covid-19 catalyst gave them the impetus to draw these strategies together quickly and offer a completely streamlined teaching solution immediately.
