Additional costs

Tuition fees do not include accommodation and transport charges. You will need to consider additional costs such as visas, medical insurance and living costs including travel, accommodation and day-to-day expenses. 

United Arab Emirates (UAE) law requires all non-national students to obtain a visa for the duration of their studies. Student visas are issued for a 12 month period, so renewals will be required for each academic year of study on our undergraduate programmes offered in Dubai. 

Please note: The cost of a visa is set by the UAE Government Services Office (GSO) and is subject to change. For further information and guidance on the visa application process, plus full terms and conditions, please email
