Education UK, part of the British Council, has launched a student competition open to all school students in the UAE in Grade 10, 11 and 12. Students are encouraged to be as creative as they like - however the entries should be based on facts - and submit a short video which depicts what they believe it would be like to live and study in the UK. Working in groups of three, they may choose to script and act out a short skit, tape interviews with each other, film a stills montage with a voice over, or even have someone film them as a living painting with a voice over explaining the scene. 

All the submissions will be showcased, and prizes for the top three submissions awarded, at the Education UK Exhibition in November.
