University of Dubai has announced a unique scholarship plan offering 50 per cent discount on tuition fees for undergraduate courses to outstanding national and international students.
Students must score 90 per cent and above in their high school exams to qualify for the scholarship.
Announcing the scheme during an academic meeting at the University of Dubai, Dr Eesa M. Bastaki, president of the university, said: “In pursuit of quality and as part of our efforts to transform Dubai as the hub of international education, UD is granting 50 per cent discount on its tuition fees to national and international students who will be an added value to quality education in UAE.”
During the meeting attended by Deans of Business, IT and Law faculties, Dr Bastaki said the scheme is unique because it is open to all undergraduate students from local and international levels and does not limit the number of outstanding students who can benefit from the scholarship.
He said: “When it comes to bright students, we all should pitch in to grant them the opportunity to learn and succeed.”
The undergraduate students should maintain a cumulative CGPA of 3.6 or above during their full-time study at University of Dubai. The plan will include also all transfer and international students who are admitted to UD.
