Canadian University Dubai listens and responds to students’ needs
during the global pandemic
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 09 September 2020: Canadian University Dubai, one of Dubai’s leading universities according to 2020 QS Ranking, focused on listening and responding to students as they enquired about programming over the summer. In light of the global pandemic, student enquiries, questions, and concerns were different this year, and CUD staff have been busy adapting to what they heard from students and parents.
Financial relief was one of students’ the main concerns. COVID-19 imposed some financial hardships across the globe, and students were looking for ways to keep their studies on track.
To remain flexible and give options for students during this difficult time, CUD has extended its offer of a 30% reduction on course fees for Fall 2020. Across all Canadian University Dubai’s undergraduate and graduate programs, new students can combine the 30% course fee reduction with the university’s wide variety of scholarships for up to a 60% reduction on tuition fees.
The university is also facilitating flexible admission procedures, such as unconditional admission, for High School students due to the impact on end of year reports and examinations due to COVID-19.
Travel restrictions have also impacted study abroad plans. As a university accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs, Canadian University Dubai shines in its ability to offer students the resources and assistance they need to keep their studies in motion with plans to transfer Canada and abroad.
Dr. Karim Chelli, President and Vice-Chancellor, Canadian University Dubai, said: “We want to support all our existing and new students as much as possible and have adapted our services to respond to the pandemic.”
He added: “Studying abroad, for the time being, has become a challenge for many due to COVID-19; however, students who are looking to study in Canada in the future can do so by joining Canadian University Dubai and then transferring to one of our partnering Canadian universities later in their degree.”
