The University of Birmingham Dubai has announced a package of exclusive "fully-funded" scholarships - each worth up to AED300,000 ($81,000) - for students wishing to study in the heart of Dubai’s International Academic City.

The Chancellor's Full Scholarship Awards celebrate the inaugural year of the University of Birmingham Dubai and will be offered to applicants achieving exceptional academic results coupled with extra-curricular talent or impact.

The university’s Chancellor, Lord Karan Bilimoria, said: “We aim to offer the highest quality academic experience to stretch and challenge our students in Dubai, whilst encouraging bold, independent thinking to ensure that our graduates are equipped to stand out in a competitive, global employment market.

“I hope that many gifted and talented students will apply for these scholarships which are intended to recognize candidates of exceptional pedigree who would truly benefit from a University of Birmingham education.”

The awards cover the total costs of tuition fees, which could amount to up to AED300,000, and applications are invited from those students that are predicted or have achieved top grades in their high school exams, as well as demonstrating extra-curricular talent or impact such as volunteering, charity or community work, sports, music or the arts.

The first global top 100 and elite UK Russell Group university to establish a campus in Dubai, the University of Birmingham opens its doors to students in September.
