Shanghai: Degrees earned in Dubai now will be verified by the Chinese Service Centre for Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE) and the Ministry of Education in China.
Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and CSCSE have signed an agreement to enable greater levels of collaboration in higher education and student exchange, as part of ‘Dubai Week in China: Shanghai’, held recently.
“The Chinese community has contributed greatly to the growth of Dubai and we are happy this agreement builds on our relationship,” said Dr Abdullah Al Karam, director-general of KHDA, addressing more than 100 Chinese school leaders, university heads, career advisers and investors at The Langham Hotel, Xintiandi.
“International branch campuses in Dubai are known for the quality of education they provide and the multi-cultural values and skills they offer students. We look forward to welcoming more students from China to our diverse and happy city.”
On a day dedicated to innovation and learning, the excellent study and employment opportunities that a Dubai education can provide Chinese students were explored in sessions co-hosted by KHDA and Falcon and Associates. Panel discussions highlighted the importance of developing cultural intelligence and how Dubai is helping ambitious Chinese talent unlock their potential and develop into future leaders through initiatives such as Dubai Business Internships, a fully-funded programme offering outstanding graduates the opportunity to acquire business knowledge and skills through project-based modules and value-added internships at leading organisations.
