A week of special events has taken place to mark the arrival of new students to Dubai International Academic City (DIAC).
Those that have opted to study in Dubai were able to learn about student life in the emirate and socialise with their new course mates over the five-day Week of Welcome event, which took place between October 18th -22nd.
The pupils, some of whom may be looking for Dubai property for sale to give them somewhere to live after they have finished their degree, were also briefed on the health and safety guidelines of DIAC.
Executive director of Dubai Knowledge Village and the DIAC Dr Ayoub Kazim explained that the week "serves as an ideal ice-breaker for new students".
He added that organisers the Student Hub department have been "extremely successful" in introducing new initiatives to help improve the welfare of students studying in Dubai.
DIAC is owned by Tecom Investments, which also operates the Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City, as well as a number of other entities located in the emirate.
