Emirati Scholars Programme

UAE Student Flag

By the gracious consent of His Highness Sheikh Rashid Bin Said Al Maktoum, in Dubai College the UAE has created one of the world’s leading schools. We recognise that the future growth and prosperity of the UAE and Dubai is contingent upon the next generation of Emiratis.

To ensure the UAE continues its journey of progress and fulfils its vision, it is a national priority that Emiratis receive the very best education possible – not just for themselves, but to ensure the UAE’s competitiveness internationally and the achievement of a knowledge driven economy and society. We have a responsibility to ensure that UAE national students have access to and receive an education of the highest global standard. Outstanding schools with an international context, present not just an opportunity for the students but for the UAE and Dubai to ensure that its most valuable resource of all - its human capital - continue to drive its progress and development.

Please note: While priority is always given to Emirati students it is important to note that Dubai College is an academically selective school, and we are heavily oversubscribed for entry into Year 7. Admission to the College is at the sole discretion of the Head whose decision making is final. In the best interests of all applicants, the Head must consider whether students will be able cope with the academic rigour of the whole curriculum and the demands of a high performing peer group.
