Students from all over the world are seeking out the best universities to get the best education possible.

However, funding this education can be a challenge. For many families, higher education is becoming increasingly out of reach.

But there are options available for those willing to look for them. One option is applying for international scholarships that can help you fund your education at top universities around the world.

But are universities still receptive to scholarship applications from students in the Middle East? Are there scholarship opportunities available for students who want to study in the UK, the US, or Europe?

The answer is yes! There are plenty of scholarship opportunities for students from the UAE. In fact, many global universities actively recruit students from the region because they know they will add value to their campuses.

Many students limit their search to online resources but what many students based in the UAE are not aware of is that they have the opportunity to meet with university representatives face-to-face about scholarship opportunities at global education events like Najah Education Expo.

Start Your Search for International Scholarships

The Najah Expo is the perfect place to start your scholarship search and financial aid programmes. It’s the largest education event in the MENA region, and it’s happening in Abu Dhabi on October 16 - 18 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

For students in Dubai, Najah Education Expo in Dubai will take place on October 23 - 25 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

Najah Expo is showcasing over 80 universities from around the world. Some of the universities exhibiting at Najah include Paris College of Art, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, King's College London, and the University of Winnipeg Collegiate.

There will also be international universities with campuses based in the UAE including Middlesex University Dubai, University of Birmingham Dubai, New York University Abu Dhabi, and Istituto Marangoni Dubai.

Premier local universities in attendance will include Zayed University, Khalifa University, Mohammed Bin Rashid University Of Medicine, United Arab Emirates University, University of Sharjah, Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, New York University Abu Dhabi, Rabdan Academy, American University Dubai, University of Birmingham Dubai, and Istituto Marangoni Dubai.

All of these universities will have representatives who can advise you on scholarship opportunities that may be available to you.

Understand the Eligibility Criteria to Apply for Scholarships

Understanding the eligibility criteria for each scholarship is important in making sure that you are applying for the ones that you are eligible for. This is often a challenge faced by many students because they are not familiar with the process or they do not know where to look for information.

Najah Expo provides a solution to this by bringing university representatives in one venue to provide students with the latest information on scholarships and admissions. Because Najah is free to attend, students find it an effective platform to learn what they need without spending money on applications or travel.

Alan Kelly, Commercial Director of Informa Connect, the organisers of Najah Expo, commented on this, saying "Many students from the UAE do not realise that they are eligible for a range of international scholarships or if they do, they submit incomplete requirements."

"This means that they are losing out on opportunities to study at top global universities. Najah Education Expo is a great place to start your scholarship search because you can get all the information you need in one place," he added.

Najah Education Expo can also help students learn about alternative ways to fund their education at top global universities.

"We always advise students to come prepared with questions when they attend Najah," said Kelly.

He continued: "This way, they can get all the information they need to learn about the different types of financial aid that may be available to them in different countries in Europe, Canada, Australia, and more."
