Crafting Application Strategy Around the Needs of Students from the UAE

Our expert admissions counsellors are well-versed in the nuances of the UK and US application processes. That’s why our team is committed to ensuring all United Arab Emirates students have original application plans constructed with their individualised needs in mind.

When should UAE students craft UK & US applications?

We always recommend starting the application process early when possible, especially when applying as an international student. That said, we typically recommend starting at least three months before school deadlines. Crafting a winning college application takes time – you must also account for how familiar you are with the process, how many schools you’re applying to, and how proficient you are at writing and communication.

Can students in the United Arab Emirates apply to Oxford and Cambridge University?

Emirati students may only apply to either Cambridge or Oxford; UCAS only allows you to apply to one school. Unsure which school suits your academic interests and educational goals? Our experts are here to help you assess your options before you apply!

Do you work with Emirati students applying to schools in both the United Kingdom and the United States?

Yes, we’re here to help Emirati students apply to schools in both America and Britain.

Do you help Emirati students apply to other top US colleges?
