Dubai, China sign deal to boost student exchange

DUBAI, October 30, 2016

Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and the Chinese Service Centre for Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE) signed an agreement to enable greater levels of collaboration in higher education and student exchange.
Meanwhile Dubai 100 - an initiative supporting entrepreneurs with game-changing ideas–staged a boot camp offering Chinese start-ups the chance to win a place on its 100-day programme at Dubai Week in China, an event exploring Dubai’s role as China’s global gateway for economic development and cultural exchange.
Degrees earned in Dubai will now be verified by the CSCSE and the Ministry of Education in China, assuring students thinking about studying in the city that their qualifications will be recognised in their homeland.
The agreement marked the 10th signing between Chinese and Dubai entities at the Falcon and Associates initiative co-hosted by Invest Shanghai and supported by the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce (SMCC).
“The Chinese community has contributed greatly to the growth of Dubai and we are happy this agreement builds on our relationship,” said Dr Abdulla Al Karam, director general of KHDA, addressing more than 100 Chinese school leaders, university heads, career advisors 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. – TradeArabia News Service
