University of Dubai sees admissions up 15pc
Dubai, February 15, 2012
The University of Dubai (UD) has opened registration for its spring semester and has seen an increase of 15 per cent in admissions compared to this time last year.
The number of new students for spring semester would be limited to 100, but the university has not yet met the limit, it said in a statement. The deadline for applying is March 3 when the first classes of the spring semester will start.
“The increase in admissions is a promising indicator,” UD president Dr Omar Hefni said.
“While the awards we’ve received this year and the international accreditation of our degree programs speak volumes about the university, I believe UD’s reputation for an unparalleled education and for producing sought-after graduates is being spread by word-of-mouth and that is what is really helping to improve our numbers this year.”
The University of Dubai was recently named the Most Innovative School in the Middle East in European CEO Magazine’s 2011 Global Business Education Awards. – TradeArabia News Service
