Scholarship Programme

Various scholarship categories are now available to UAE and international students.

Work-Study Award – The programme is designed by Gulf American University (GAU) and pleased to inform international students that our institutions are still admitting students for 2021/2022 WORK-STUDY DUBAI Scheme in Student Internship/Work Service.

This scholarship seeks applicants with the potential to work in UAE and study along parallel lines, thereby gaining real time industry experience while studying, to be able to fit into ideal work places upon graduation and make the desired impact.

Application Deadline: Still Open

Offered Annually? Yes;

Eligible Countries: Most Countries

About the Award: Looking at the high cost of education and pendulum of unstable exchange rates of currencies in various countries versus the USD ($), we see a need for tertiary students to work while studying, to enable them assist self/parents in footing bills and gaining hands-on experience for professional development.

Our Dubai or UAE offers are work study schemes where students can work and study.

Whilst students’ main focus is not how to make money, some may not have enough experience to be accepted into high profile jobs in UAE upon graduation. Hence, we will try to fix them on available jobs in our University and other organizations based on our relationships with the Managers.
