To celebrate the inaugural year of the University of Birmingham Dubai, the institution will be offering fully-funded scholarships to those applicants achieving exceptional academic results coupled with extra-curricular talent or impact.

The Chancellor's Full Scholarship Awards will cover the total cost of tuition, which could amount to up to 300,000 AED.

Commenting on the announcement, University Chancellor, Lord Karan Bilimoria, said: "We aim to offer the highest quality academic experience to stretch and challenge our students in Dubai, whilst encouraging bold, independent thinking to ensure that our graduates are equipped to stand out in a competitive, global employment market."

"I hope that many gifted and talented students will apply for these scholarships which are intended to recognise candidates of exceptional pedigree who would truly benefit from a University of Birmingham education."

Students studying in Dubai will be able to choose from courses in Business, Economics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Primary and Secondary teaching training.

The University of Birmingham will open its Dubai campus in September 2018, providing degrees that will be accredited to the same standards as those delivered on its UK campus.
