GEMS Education and Canadian University Dubai have announced a partnership that will offer scholarships exclusively to GEMS students.
The value of the scholarships is AED10 million ($2.7 million), a statement stated, adding that they will begin this academic year 2018-2019.
Scholarship amounts will change depending on course of study and the academic merit of GEMS students.
GEMS students who study at Canadian University Dubai will be able to study both at the Dubai and Canadian campuses.
GEMS said choosing to study in Canada will provide a unique career boost for students, as the country offers a path to citizenship once an international student gains a post-secondary degree from a Canadian university.
GEMS announced the launch of the UniConnect programme last year. The programme is set to include a series of strategic partnerships designed to provide scholarships and financial aid to GEMS students seeking admission at universities within the region and across the globe.
This first partnership with Canadian University Dubai also provides for dedicated career training for GEMS students.
President of Canadian University Dubai, Dr Karim Chelli, said, “This partnership with GEMS Education illustrates our deep commitment to ensuring a transformational education experience for our students. We also recognise that strong relationships with partners such as GEMS Education enable us to build and shape future leaders.”
CEO of GEMS Education, Dino Varkey, added that, “We are proud to announce Canadian University Dubai as our first partner with UniConnect. We look forward to partnering with many more universities in the UAE and internationally – including the Ivy League – as part of our commitment to making quality education accessible for all our students throughout their schooling and beyond.”
