Review about United Arab Emirates University

Look, there are no English language training courses here, as I don't have a toefl
Egor good afternoon, unfortunately there are no language courses at this university, but we will be able to offer other options as well in the UAE.

Good afternoon. I have two sons (twins) currently in 11th grade. We live in Turkmenistan. We are considering your university for higher education. The first question is faculties and price. And do you have discounts or a budget department (we have a large family).
Good afternoon training will be in Arabic. For discounts and faculties you need to request information on the official website of the university
Maya Atayeva
How much does it cost to study per year and the list of faculties
Good afternoon, the price varies from faculty to specialty. The full list can be found on the official website in Arabic.
