Dubai is one of seven emirates which make up the United Arab Emirates. It is recognized as the commercial capital and tourism centre of the region, and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. It is a city of contrasts, where outstanding modern architecture and soaring skyscrapers stand alongside traditional Arabic buildings and suburban villas. Its many and varied attractions provide visitors with a unique experience. The timeless majesty of the desert contrasts with a spectacular nightlife of restaurants and nightclubs. Arabic is the national language, but English, Urdu, Hindi and Farsi are widely spoken.
The Academic & Student Support Office at the Dubai Campus have responsibility for a range of administrative services including registration, examinations, graduations, transfers, coursework submission and immigration. They are the first point of contact for advice on non-academic matters for current Dubai Campus students.
