Over 300 courses showcased at Getex

DUBAI, November 15, 2018

Over 300 academic and occupational courses are being presented to Emirati and expat students and professionals who are actively looking for higher education, professional development, and training options at an ongoing event in Dubai, UAE.

The Autumn edition of the Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (Getex) kicked off yesterday (November 14) and will run over the weekend until November 16, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The exhibition is being organised by International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E).

Tanya Mokle, show director, said: “Final year students for 12 schools across UAE visited Getex Autumn on its opening day—serving as a testament that school managements give serious consideration to their student’s post-secondary education options.”

“As organisers of the UAE’s foremost education brand, we recognise the important role schools play in their students’ higher education, whether it be their performance levels, their choice of subjects or simply their attitude towards studying further,” she said.

The objective behind hosting an autumn edition is to provide universities and colleges, which have an intake in January and February, an opportunity to meet with prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students.

On the other hand, the event also allows students to preview their study options after the close of their current academic year between March and June of the next year.   

In tandem with rapid advancements in the job market across various sectors, triggered by technological advancements, learners now find it extremely important to keep themselves updated with opportunities of skills acquisition.

This shift in attitudes has prompted education providers to constantly interact with the student community to shed light on recent advances, courses and their rising relevance, and the quality of course deliver, among others.

Mokle said: “Platforms such as Getex are becoming extremely relevant as more and more learners and working professionals become aware of the importance of constantly upgrading their skill sets.”

“The UAE has one of the fastest growing student populations heading towards higher education in the world,” she added. – TradeArabia News Service
