Dubai known as the city of dreams, embraces a wide variety of scenery in a very small area. Located on the Eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, in the south west corner of the Arabian Gulf, it is well known for its warm hospitality and rich cultural heritage, and a cosmopolitan society with an international lifestyle, yet with a culture deeply rooted in the Islamic traditions of Arabia.
The local people from Dubai are called Emiratis, and only about 10-15% of Emiratis make up the population of Dubai, which means most of the population in Dubai is composed of expatriates. Arabic is the official language in Dubai, although English is widely spoken as well.
Dubai has developed and expanded rapidly over the past few decades, making it one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Trade, tourism, transport, industry and finance have all contributed to Dubai’s economy and it is the second most popular international destination for shopping after the United States and ahead of popular shopping destinations such as Singapore, France, United Kingdom and Hong Kong among others.
The UAE itself has the highest number of international branch campuses in comparison with any other country in the world, with nearly 40 in the UAE out of over 220 worldwide. The UAE is growing as an education hub with many international higher education institutes setting up here, catering to transnational students from across the world.
