Its open day provides an opportunity for parents and prospective students to talk to senior academics about the courses on offer and find out about the range of opportunities available to develop employability and entrepreneurship skills.
Visitors to the open day will be able to meet course directors from undergraduate and postgraduate programmes including Business, Economics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Primary and Secondary Teacher Education.
University of Birmingham Dubai Provost Professor Glyn Watson said: “We look forward to welcoming prospective students and their families to the latest open day at the University of Birmingham Dubai campus.
“We have been welcoming the brightest students from across the globe to the University of Birmingham for more than 100 years and are proud to be bringing our world-class British education to Dubai."
“We aim to offer the highest quality academic experience to stretch and challenge our students in Dubai, whilst encouraging bold, independent thinking to ensure that our graduates are equipped to stand out in a competitive, global employment market.
“By choosing to study with us, students will be taught by outstanding academics; experts in their fields who are shaping policy, influencing society, and changing lives. They will join one of the world’s top 100 universities, which counts 11 Nobel Prize winners among its former staff and students.”
Opening its Dubai campus marks the latest phase in the University of Birmingham’s global ambitions and builds on the University’s international teaching activities in Singapore and China, and its extensive international research collaborations.
Following approval by the Dubai Government’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), which is responsible for the growth and quality of education, the University of Birmingham Dubai will provide opportunities for students to study on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
The University of Birmingham Dubai is located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC), a leading international education hub with 26 universities.
