The UAE - A Top Study Destination for Indian students

The UAE - A Top Study Destination for Indian students

Thursday, 28 March, 2019

University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD), as well as the immigration procedures that have recently been announced to allow Indian students that have ‘exceptional’ student performance to increase their visas to up to 5 years and more, there are a number of reasons why the UAE ranks as a top destination for studies amongst Indian students.

According to a study conducted by the KHDA, ‘Indian students are the happiest’ amongst their counterparties and this is not a surprise given the fact that the UAE offers an excellent infrastructure for students.

Indian nationals in the United Arab Emirates constitute the largest part of the population of the country, and with over 2 million Indian migrants this makes up to 27% of the population that is growing even more.

Career prospects at Indian organisations

The business-friendly environment in the UAE attracts a number of foreign investment and Indian companies especially in the IT and Industrial sectors, are growing like never before. This offers Indian students a great opportunity for professional development, during or after their studies. Since many Indian companies have chosen the UAE as a regional hub for their operations, there are plenty of career prospects for Indian students, regardless if they wish to stay and work in the UAE after completing their studies or go back to India or elsewhere. The majority of UAE based companies have branches in India and other parts of the world which offers professionals opportunities to move and develop within an organisation.


Indian nationals have the benefit of being able to get their tourist visa upon arrival to the UAE which gives the opportunity to easily travel in and out. Students or professionals who are on a residence visa can sponsor their family members and provide them with a visa if they wish to stay in the UAE for the long term.


Since the majority of UAE Expatriates are from India, the Indian culture and customs have spread throughout the region. Most corporations and entities offer Hindi as a third language after Arabic, the national language, as well as English in their communications with customers. The UAE is home to some of the world’s most famous Indian restaurants and Hindi culture and customs have widely spread through the many communities and platforms available to Indian nationals in the UAE which makes the UAE tuly a home away from home for so many.

UOWD proudly represents more than 108 nationalities with its Indian student population featuring among their top nationalities on campus.
