Exploring Student Life in Dubai: A Guide for International Students

Student Life in Dubai for International Students

Dubai is one of the best metropolitan cities in the world, with an easy, technology-integrated lifestyle. For “international students” venturing into a new city for the first time, Dubai is an exceptional choice. It is one of the safest cities in the world. Interestingly, the safest city worldwide is also in the UAE: Abu Dhabi.

The UAE is fast earning the title of ‘education hub of the Middle East’. The local government has supported its ambitions by allocating a stunning 16% of its annual budget towards its education sector. As such, Dubai brings a refreshing mix of tech-savvy academic creative solutions to the table.

International students can thus choose to study in the UAE, which guarantees safety and comfort. However, we want to focus on what they can do to enrich their lives once they are here.

  • A Great Place to Live

    You’ve seen it in films and watched the reels; Dubai offers a luxurious lifestyle. However, what it doesn’t tell you is that the UAE delivers lavish living even on a budget. You don’t have to be ultra-wealthy to thrive as a student in this desert city. The great influx of people from around the world means that the city naturally offers excellent service and clean, well-built apartments at a great price. Especially when compared with Europe, Canada, the UK or the US, Dubai is very affordable indeed.

    That aside, excellent government initiatives have seen the city construct exceptional infrastructure. Dubai’s public transport system in particular has earned a nod of approval from millions of visitors and is ranked 1st within the MENA region. That makes it easy and safe for new international students to get around as they explore the city and study.

  • Celebrating the Wonders of Technology

    Within the UAE, Dubai has earned the name ‘City of the Future’. As most are aware, it takes its technology seriously. This pro-technology perspective thrives due to the government’s implementation of smart city plans, futuristic vision and technological adoption. “International students” will have the chance to explore stunning visual feasts such as the Museum of the Future.

  • Explore a New Culture

    The UAE holds on to its traditions with the dignity it deserves. It displays it proudly, maintaining areas like Old Dubai. It even pays homage to its rich heritage in the beautiful, newly built Al Seef. International students visiting those locations can enjoy AED 1 boat rides to the next stop on the city’s water transport systems.

  • Drool-Worthy Food

    At LUBM, we’re foodies, and we don’t think that Dubai’s excellent food culture gets the credit it deserves. The UAE boasts a wide, blended demographic of residents from over 200 nations. Additionally, its central location on the world map makes it an excellent trade hub. Thus, spices and ingredients from around the world make their way into the city, where they are celebrated.

    We have it on excellent authority that international students cherish the array of mouth-watering, scrumptious dishes popularly available within the city. That aside, Dubai has more restaurants per capita than even New York!

  • Unique Natural Beauty

    The UAE’s deserts hold astonishing beauty folded into them. Intrepid international students can unleash their adventurous side in Dubai. It offers a blend of tamed and wild deserts, like Al Qudra and the Al Quaa Milky Way spot. The mountainous terrains nearby mingle beautifully with the sunset as people make their way to the sea. With gentle and safe hiking spots and gorgeous, clean beaches, Dubai is a little paradise for adventurers.

We also believe that this is a good time to explain that the UAE’s location makes it the perfect spot to visit other countries from.

Student Benefits, Visas and Work Opportunities

For “international students” with an eye on their wallets, here’s a reason to smile: student IDs bring you discounts. The city has a host of price cuts for students, so the clever and well-informed pupil can cut down their wallet drain considerably.

That aside, the UAE has now begun to offer the newly minted 10-year Golden Visa to international students. Since this aims to attract the best and brightest, many will find it easier to transition into working here later. Speaking of work, it should be noted that Dubai offers labour cards to students for part-time work. Besides being the regional business hub, it offers an excellent step into jobs at MNCs.

Tax-free Living and Shopping: A Local Attraction

Numerous international students over the years have taken advantage of the UAE’s tax-free stance. How? They shop their hearts out. They have also enjoyed the local attractions, like the tallest building and the biggest mall in the world. That aside, Dubai residents are curious and urbane and quickly adopt trendy new activities. So, a weekend might consist of breakfast at an art cafe, some delectable meals, and an evening at an indoor ski resort.

As Dubai’s economy continues to grow rapidly, graduates can easily find excellent jobs in multinational companies. Safely ensconced in the city, many have built good lives in this tax-free sanctuary. Step into a better future with LUBM’s incredible programs, and kickstart your career.
