Update: forthcoming careers events

There are a number of forthcoming visitors to the UAE who are either holding a university event or will be available to offer private university application support (at a price). Details:

  • St. Andrews is a good UK university. They will be holding an open event at JESS in Arabian Ranches, from 6.30pm on Wed 24th Sept, about their courses and entry requirements (and to some extent the wider Scottish system.)
  • Inner Universe are a private firm hosting Australian universities and Murdoch, Newcastle and RMIT will be holding events respectively on Thur 18th 2pm, Fri 19th 3pm, Sat 20th 10am. Email them to register if interested. (Their marketing didn’t say where.)
  • Gyanberry are agents for Charles University, Prague, for the testing in Duabi for the medicine programme. You need to sit their entrance exam this Friday (19th). Email them to register.
  • Gabbitas is bringing a former school careers advisor over to the UK to advise on university entrance (“Universities Uncovered”) at 6.30pm Mon 29th at Arabian Ranches Golf Club. It doesn’t sound like anything we don’t already advise you on anyway but check it out on their website if you want – it’s free.
  • Global Connections sounds like a commercial firm advising students on universities, being paid by UK universities to seek international students. They’re in Dubai Nov 2nd – 6th if you want some advice outside of school. Email Roua.
