An agreement has been signed between Pakistan Consulate in Dubai and several universities that will allow students to attain scholarships worth one million dirhams. Along with that, students will now benefit from discounts of up to 50 percent on tuition fees.
Instead of moving back to Pakistan for higher education, students will now continue their studies in the UAE regardless of the expensive fee structures in the Emirates. On Sunday, the consulate visited Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (Szabist) Dubai and on Monday, with Skyline University College, in Sharjah.
Ali said, “Agreements with two other universities, Bolton University in Ras Al Khaimah and Al Dar University, will also be signed soon as details are being finalized with them,” he added. “Many of our students had no choice but to head back home since not many affordable options were available for them in the UAE. We want to encourage them to continue their studies here while staying close to their families.”
Who Can Apply?
Only Pakistani students living in UAE can apply for this scholarship with a minimum GPA of 2.50
How To Apply for the Scholarship?
Pakistani students can apply for the scholarship through the consulate, connecting them to the university of their choice.
