Dubai: A New educational programme to help high school students, who didn’t meet the admission requirements of institutions of higher education, will be implemented as of the new academic year 2016-2017.
In collaboration with Higher Colleges of Technology and the Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ACTVET), the Ministry of Education has announced the implementation of the Professional Achievement Programme to help and enable students who were not accepted by universities to pursue their undergraduate studies and be on the right academic track.
About 800 students have been registered in the programme so far.
