1 UAE Education Prospect ICEF- Dubai 2013

2 UAE General Information Official Name: United Arab Emirates Capital: Abu Dhabi Government Type: Monarchy Population: 8.3 million Area: square Languages: Arabic Ethnic Groups: Indians, Pakistani, Western, Arabs. Emirati are 16% of the total population

3 The Education System of UAE Local schools follow the Arabic curriculum International schools follow a variety of curriculums like IB, UK, American, Indian, Pakistani etc (Dubai s private education sector spans 148 schools offering 13 different curricula to more than 210,000 students. Since 2007, schools have recorded consistent growth in enrolment, with a 7.4% increase in the last academic year) This excerpt is from the KHDA inspection report In total, there are more than a 2000 schools (public and private in the UAE)

4 The Education System of UAE (Deficiencies) Students finish schools lacking appropriate English language High school is 12 years of education for certain universities students will need a foundation year Thus students lose a minimum of 2 years before joining a university

5 The Size of the Market in the UAE Of late, the education sector is receiving serious attention from the government. As part of a new strategy, the UAE Ministry of Education has got a new organizational structure that aims to strengthen the role of the ministry and enhance their work in the field of academic studies. In the budget for the fiscal year 2010, the education sector was given top priority about 22.5 per cent of the total budget of Dh43.6 billion has been allocated to the education sector, said Mr Ahmed Mohammed Al Midfa The report said the total number of students in the region is expected to grow from 9.5 million in 2010 to 11.3 million in 2020 at a compounded annual growth rate of 1.8 per cent. (http://www.edarabia.com/11342/uae-rise-in-number-ofstudents-to-boost-demand-for-higher-education/)

6 The Size of the Market in Dubai Dubai: The number of students enrolled in higher education institutions in Dubai increased 10 per cent last year, a Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) report revealed yesterday. The total number of students enrolled in the emirate's tertiary education sector was put at 43,212 in the report titled The Higher Education Landscape in Dubai This compares to a total of 39,127 students in the previous year.

14 Accreditation of International Universities (a small list) Local accreditation CAA KHDA (see next slide) International accreditation AACSB ABET AMBA EQUIS

15 KHDA Accreditation Free zone campuses stand to benefit The Higher Education Landscape in Dubai 2011 report shows that the majority of students in Dubai 59 per cent attend institutions outside the purpose-built free zones; although the free zones account for 60 per cent of Dubai's 52 institutions. However Dr Abdullah Al Karam, Director General of KHDA, believes the number of students at free zone institutions will surpass those at non-free zone institutions within the next three years. He believes this will be due to the new Dubai government legislation, Resolution 21, which now grants KHDA authority to certify academic degrees from private institutions in the free zones. This means, qualifications obtained by students at Dubai's free zone institutions will now be recognized by employers in both the private and public sectors.

16 Adult Education (corporate) Online and distance education is not approved. Only 30% of total curriculum can be by distance Many organisations provide qualifications for working adults who represent 65% of the population Quality is not maintained so the working adults always face difficulties.

17 Setting up in the UAE Visa and labour law challenges Accreditation challenges (local, federal) Setting up campuses without proper market research, or regional knowledge. Starting fast and with a bang rather than starting slow, with the niche programme and having a period for incubation, Universalities that started did not have a strong home campus support nor did they measure the growth Out of 30 universities that started in Dubai academic city, 3 failed, which represents 10%. There is a need for vocational education Specialised higher education providers Professional and executive education Academic partner expansion Focus on quality vs quantity R&D centres and other supporting facilities.

21 Trends & Tendencies of Emirati Students that Study abroad Going abroad is a tradition, our dads did it, we did it, and our generations to come will do it However the ministry has to approve the university The Ministry of Higher Education provided lists of the recommended higher education institutions abroad. These institutions are evaluated according to a number of criteria for the recognition of higher education institutions abroad, which was developed by the Commission of Certificates Equivalency.
