Although education might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of the UAE, the major education shift with world-class universities and potential tax-free earnings after graduation has attracted a huge number of international students especially from India in the last decade. For Indian students, the dominant factor to apply for admission in the UAE is the geographical location.

According to the 2017 data released by the Institute of International Education, there were a total of 77,469 international students in UAE with 13,370 from India alone. Other countries of origin for non-Emirati students in UAE include the Syrian Arab Republic, Jordan, Pakistan, Oman among others.

The Middle Eastern country is home to the best universities in the Gulf region according to the QS World University Rankings. Located at the eastern end of the Arabian Peninsula, the country is a federation of seven emirates or states including Abu Dhabi and Dubai that have continuously contributed to the development of private institutions along with enrollment growth.
